News: Microsoft prepares to explain .Net

That headline should read, "Microsoft prepars to SELL .Net"
Unwittingly the new slogan, "One Degree of Separation," is exactly what's wrong with Microsoft's whole business approach. It fails to recognize the value of diversity and free markets and focuses instead on trying to impose its own vision on the whole industry, demanding to be the sole doorkeeper to all computing. It's not enough to be successful and make useful products; all other choices must be eliminated.

Most of us don't want One Degree of Separation, particularly when that means putting Microsoft in charge of all our security and privacy.
