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.
