Erm, this is my real name and I included the akas at the bottom of my first post because I stand by those words posted in both forums linked in the OP. And hey, at least I don't hide way when making comments :)
As to who I work for; Zoe Mode, UK
My first project was on the PS2 and at home I spent the last 8 years working with OpenGL before swapping.
Nothing todo with MS, but thanks for playing.
As for everyone else making noise, the majority of them are people, like myself, who have been around for some time on the forums (in the case of the OpenGL forum longer than me) so are hardly MS "subversive tactics", but feel free to carry on living in your paranoia :)
