Think of how "Microsoft did not make any payments to foreign government officials" while lobbying for OOXML, and how "Microsoft conducts its business in compliance with laws to designed to promote fair competition" every time they suppressed competitors. In their Corporate Citizenship sction, they discuss how the customer-focused approach creates products that work well with those of competitors and open-source solutions. So all the reverse-engineering by Samba and OpenOffice.org developers wasn't really necessary. It makes one wonder how people got all those weird ideas about the ethical company Microsoft?"
