Microsoft's notions of "security" and "trust" are obviously one-sided, and
such a system would certainly be used to squash fair use and first sale rights.
Moreover, mono-culture is bad policy for computer security; Damages will
be widespread when the system is inevitably compromised.
The internet is our public common, but in this scheme Microsoft would be the
sole gatekeeper. Free software can protect you from such outrages, because the
source code is anchored to the common for all to see. Use free software
instead of Microsoft products.
