It's a good example of technical reality vs. the law. Sure, Microsoft
may be committing all kinds of (in the court's expressed opinion)
illegal acts, and it may be violating a consent agreement, but there is
(as yet) no enforcement to back the laws up, therefore the laws are
irrelevant. Likewise, Microsoft can say anything they want - maybe
even get lawmakers to agree - but they tend to get ignored, *even if
laws get passed*, in most cases by those who actually work with what's
being talked about when their statements are false. (Extra emphasis,
however, on the disclaimers here.)
