@lightweight There's certainly some of that, mostly at the top of the Microsoft pyramid. But there may be more to it.
Now I'm not trying to defend them but here's a little nuancing theory to think about: ...1/3


Microsoft, like any such corporation having thousands of employees should, according to probabilistic circumstances, contain some who are honest and have good values and manage to reach decently high in the hierarchy until they realize they're not working in the place of their dreams. These people have 3 options: ...2/3

1. reveal truths to the public and get fired
2. share their values with their boss or coworkers and probably get fired
3. be more subtle by hiding their values under arguments their boss will like so their ideas can be applied in the end.

as history shows, none of these give truly positive results but they can limit damage.
