Microsoft is attempting a FUD response to the Halloween documents. And I'm afraid Robert Cringely doesn't get it either. What scares the world about these documents is that while we've long laughingly suggested that Microsoft deliberately breaks standards in order to coopt them, we've wanted to believe that this was just incompetence on Microsoft's part (See the broken CHAP stuff in Microsoft's attempts at PPP authentification, for instance). This is Microsoft saying "No, we're truly evil, and we will deliberately try to foil all of your efforts."
