    And not if something uneccesarily gives away my privacy.

    I really hate the way MS office asks me for my username and intials when i
    turn it on and then stamps all the documents with my identity.
    I also feel no need to give free adversting to my hardware manufacturer.

    Who else remembers the story about Microsofts press releases being marked
    with metadata identifying them as created with Mac? :)
