I always suspected it. For a long time I did. Then, during the M$ Anti-Trust Trials, about how M$ sabotoged small business... They would find a company with tons of potential, set them up, give them an impossible job, then ruin their reputation. They would then swoop in and snatch up the company. Sounds just like what happened. They did it to THOUSANDS of companies by the sounds of it. I did a lot of studying about M$ and sabotoge. We could have been a good bit more advanced in many technologies, if M$ had not killed some good devs and then swept them under the rug.
