But what if the source code would prove certain things we always suspected?
Undocumented 'features' in the code that would allow Microsoft programmers
to write their software more efficiently than people without access to the
source? Comments in the code showing that certain changes were made
specifically to break software not made by Microsoft? Backdoors to let NSA
people in? GPL (open source) code included in closed source Microsoft
