You know better than that. No extremes were mentioned, just a valid
observation. Remember, corporatism is a form of totalitarianism of
which Microsoft is it's greatest expositor. Also witness Bill Gates'
behaviour when he doesn't get what he wants.... It isn't quod erat
demonstrandum, but close enough for here.
"However dazzlin and dauting (the technologist's) display
of worldly wisdom, their true inspiration lies elsewhere,
in an enduring, otherworldly quest for transcendence and
salvation" - David F. Noble, "The Religion of Technology"
