Business as usual for MS.
The Guardian does not put it mildly ;-) "Microsoft is accused of trying to exert clandestine influence on a UK government consultation which could slash the software giant's £700m income from the UK's public sector." http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2012/apr/27/microsoft-government-consultation via
Any company that's big enough will become indistinguishable from a corrupt third-world dictatorship complete with assassins and drug deals. That's not defending M$ mind you. And it's not accusing the third world of anything either.
Fortunately I do not deal with criminal organizations. I do not do business with the mob and our local wise guys, and rather similarly I do not do anything with Microsoft and their thugs.
