Gutmann Responds to Microsoft's "Response"

Peter Gutmann, the author of the original Windows Vista Suicide Note article, has posted a response to the blog entry that the Vista team posted on their blog. In the response he outlines, question by question, many of the glaring contradictions in Microsoft's responses.
Some of the material was new and interesting (for example clarifying just what actually gets revoked when a driver revocation occurs), other parts seem more likely to have come from Waggener Edstrom (Microsoft's PR firm) than Program Manager Dave Marsh (The Inquirer wasn't too impressed by it either. I'll be updating the body text based on some of the clarifications, but for things that aren't directly relevant to the main text (which means the PR-spin items) I'll comment on them here.
An interesting read.
