I knew Ed Curry and worked with him at his home north of Austin for some reporting I did regarding bugs in the Cyrix CPUs. He was a friendly and kind-hearted person, was deeply devoted to both his religion and family. With respect, however, he did not have the best of business judgement. I spoke with him during the time he was setting up his NT certification business. I do not recall all the details, but even today I remember feeling uneasy that he was investing so heavily in creating a business for C2 certification before demand had proven itself. The alarms were going off in my head. I really think that Ed read a lot more into the relationship than he had a right to do.

I would not disagree with your evaluation.

It does not excuse Microsoft's behavior.
