Ex-Microsoft Adviser Claims Not to Trust Microsoft (Updated)

Updated: As requested, we have amended our original article to reflect the fact that our original source, The Guardian, has updated its original article to reflect the fact that Bowden (ex-adviser to Microsoft)'s distrust of Microsoft's technology began before the NSA news leaked out.

He was also not, as The Guardian stated, in charge of the company's privacy policy, and their suggestion that he now trusts open source software "where he can examine the underlying code himself" was also incorrect.

We apologise for any undue stress the previous article caused, to Bowden or any other parties.
