Yes, but I've never had a problem myself with it. If NT is so bad and
MS is the big evil, use something else. Government intervention is
seldom a good thing. Just watch the FTC and privacy regulations that
are coming for the Internet. Or what about the largest tax increase in
history which was never voted on but imposed by the FCC under an
executive order. Of course Reed Hundt stepped down before the firestorm
began... Be careful what you wish for...
