Government spooks helped Microsoft build Vista

"THE USA GOVERNMENT'S cryptologic organisation, the National Security Agency,
has admitted that it is behind some of the security changes to Microsoft's
operating system Vista.

According to the Washington Post, the agency which was once so secret that it
was jokingly referred to as 'No such Agency' has admitted making 'unspecified
contributions' to Vista.

Microsoft is not the only one to tap the spooks. Apple, with its Mac OSX
operating system, and Novell with its SUSE Linux also asked the NSA what it
thought of their products."
