I have a friend in the US who is so anti-MS he's nearly rabid over 
it. We were talking about the stupidity of corporations that use 
Windows in SCADA. I can't believe it's still happening. CEOs who do 
that should be hung and quartered in the town square for such 
terrible decision-making. Countries without regulatory oversight to 
stop such stupidity of IT install deserve what they get. What is all 
this 'security' stuff about if not protecting the public 
infrastructure? You gotta weep.

sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
