ROBERT STEELE: I am planning to migrate away from all Microsoft products for two reasons: first, they have been taken over by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and now claim the right to deny software services if anyone uses “hate speech” ad defined by the ADL; and second, they are getting sloppy and delivering malware in some of their automated updates.

Web 3.0 is emergent.  It will not include Microsoft other than via automated conversion of documents into true open source within a federated network that cannot be censored.
