Boy what a mouthful. And what expertise? OK - how about just shutting down operations? All of them? And stopping all that monopolistic bullying? Because that would really help.

Jeff Jones is an infamous Microsoft propagandist. He uses the approach of engaging in lawyeristic word games in an endless effort to alway make the MS product look good and the competing products look bad without regard to actual performance characteristics.

Jones appears to be a product of MS culture which values winning at any cost and where facts are to be kicked to the gutter and methodically distorted anytime they're found to be inconvenient.
