Brian Livingston: Genuine Advantage is Microsoft spyware

Brian Livingston minces no words in his weekly Windows Secrets newsletter lead article, “Genuine Advantage is Microsoft spyware .” He goes on to say:

No PC-using company that values security and reliability can allow a program like WGA to send data to a distant server, download additional software, morph its behavior, or remotely change the functionality of Windows (as I describe below). I don't believe individuals should put up with this, either.”

This isn't a frothing-at-the-mouth, I-hate-Bill, Anything-But-Microsoft lunatic writing these words, rather it's someone who makes his living supporting Microsoft software.
