Microsoft Anti-Spyware Tool
Microsoft will be giving away its anti-spyware tools. I’m not sure this will be a good thing. Given the inherent subjectivity of the definition of “spyware,” the last thing I want is Microsoft making that decision for me. Do you Microsoft will be particularly quick to label software as “spyware” if it might also have the ancillary effect of competing with Microsoft’s offerings? It reminds me of the age-old dilemma: who watches the watchers?
