Kent, there is a nice sociology/anthropology term for your attitude
toward Microsoft; for you (and me), Microsoft is 'ritually unclean',
like pork to Muslims and Jews ;-).

I prefer the legal term: criminal.

 In most settings it can be
shortened to 'unclean' since in ordinary usage the opposite of clean
is dirty. In fact, this is probably why the term was invented. There
is a lot of jugdementalism is saying something or someone is 'dirty'.

That's what courts are for.
