qDo you have different feelings?  I an confident that it will fail without our
help.

The point is that it is fundamentally flawed.  A decentralized authentication
model based on public/private key crypto is the solution.

The only thing that could get it past the stupidity is possibly the billions of
$$ that MS has in the bank.

MS could sell ice to eskimos with that much money! :)

Of course I am puttting my money where my mouth is on this issue! :)
