Re: There's really no reason to bash MS for not disclosing details
Ok Mr "I'm a business professional". Explain how defamation is not an actionable tort. Microsoft has made some serious accusations without basis in an attempt to damage the credibility and business of competitors. There's probably a specific Lanham Act cause of action in there.
Talking trash is a dangerous business in the real world where adults live.
Microsoft benefits from the fact that it is the industry bully and it's defaming a loose collection small entities none of which really have the clout or resources to mount a legal counteroffensive.
