  This is becoming par for the Microsoft course. That last line is a real 
  doozy. Which portion of Windows 95 are we talking about here? 
  Every company of any size has its PR functions, but I seriously doubt 
  that any other believes so fervently in its own propaganda. This is 
  Microsoft's possibly fatal personality flaw: They have a nearly Orwellian 
  capacity for internalizing their own, blinkard lies.
