Submission + - FSF responds to Microsoft's privacy and encryption announcement (fsf.org)

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft announced yesterday their plans to encrypt customer data to prevent government snooping. Free Software Foundation executive directory John Sullivan asks the logic of trusting nonfree software and adds "Proprietary software like Windows is fundamentally insecure not because of Microsoft's privacy policies but because its code is hidden from the very users whose interests it is supposed to secure."
