    WZor is an OEM affiliate, he was never M$ based AFAIK...

    All surmise, but my uninformed guess may have some background? (Post #9). Both and the Wzor Twitter site have been shut down

    Hi there
    What's the problem all of you seem to have with this -- A company is entitled to keep its intellectual property under protection. If you get caught stealing -- you pay the penalty. Same if you work for the CIA and get caught in N. Korea / Russia, China etc (or even in Germany spying on Madame Merkel !!).

    I'm sure most companies if not all have something about instant dismissal if you steal company property.

    Of course we all would like to get our hands on leaked copies -- but if you are doing this then remember the 11th commandment "Thou shall not get caught / found out". If you get caught then you have to pay the penalty and don't expect any sympathy.

    I don't personally have a problem with it. I just find anything Microflopy objects to funny.
    I remember when a fellow Aussie who designed one of the most popular registration processes in the world had to sue microflopy for stealing some of his code and they had to pay him out Millions, and Millions of dollars. So ... the irony
