To folks who think the Microsoft Corporation is A-Ok, consider: https://www.theverge.com/2022/3/25/22995144/microsoft-foreign-corrupt-practices-bribery-whistleblower-contracting That's been Standard Operating Procedure (combined with its time honoured Embrace, Extend, Extinguish playbook) for decades. That's how you get to be a $ trillion corporation. Not by playing fair, or by being ethical. Anything Microsoft (or any of the Frightful Five) is involved in is tarnished by association, and we shouldn't let it go by without comment.
