Windows 7: Microsoft Continues their SPYING practices

Microsoft posted a disturbing article… Does everyone remember that wonderful time in the last 10 years as Microsoft continued to muck with everyone’s machines with WGA; interrogating and SPYING on peoples machines to see if they were ‘genuine’?
