MICROSOFT WAS WORKING WITH THE GOVERNMENT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING

2009 Nov 20 from Robin Gaskell

About the sharing of security between MicroSoft and the NSA: it's not new. In the good old days when Microsoft was DOS - not Windows - and programming was so unsophisticated that I could use an old fashioned 'word processor' like Galaxy to 'inspect' Microsoft's system software, I found that MS and NSA were already at it.

Having heard that there were 'back windows' built into the Gates operating system ... allowing Microsoft operatives to look inside the memory of computers running the Microsoft DOS Operating System ... I thought such a thing was interesting. But when there was a rumour going about that Microsoft were being good boys, and sharing the 'back window' facility with the government's National Security Agency, I thought I should look into the matter.

Very gingerly, without changing any of the code, I opened the DOS Operating System file using the Galaxy word processor.
And, lo, I beheld instance after instance, throughout the software, pairs of files, one with the prefix MS in front of a number, and a second with the prefix NA in front of the same number. Although I could not alter the software, nor would have done so had I been able to, I resaved the DOS file unaltered and closed Galaxy ... in the knowledge that there were many 'back windows' in the DOS program, and also that MS and NSA appeared to be "feeding at the same trough".

An interesting snippet for the archives of computer programming,

Av en eller annen grunn er jeg ikke overrasket Confused
