Dan Marks sent in This Story which discusses one of the things Microsoft is doing right these days- It is not participating in the normal practice of buying influence in Washington DC. This is a must read. But every coin has 2 faces, and this story sent to us by Alan is a very chilling account of how Microsoft Chewed up and spit out the 3D industry a few years back. I want all you MS Haters to read both articles. And try to argue intelligently- both of these articles are good examples of how the War with Microsoft will be won. The all to common MS bashing I hear so often won't get us anywhere, but this stuff... the truth will.
