“Out of all places”
This writer is an idiot.

Well, didn’t Microsoft declare that they embrace open source?
I think this code is more like their open sores, though.

It looks like OP posted an AMP link. These should load faster, but Google’s AMP is controversial because of [concerns over privacy and the Open Web](https://www.reddit.com/r/AmputatorBot/comments/ehrq3z/why_did_i_build_amputatorbot).

I love how they lightly imply QAnon could be involved, as if QAnon is anything like Anonymous. Also this seems like not news? The whole article is like quotes from different people being like “Yeah these have been leaked for a while”.

Anyone downloaded from the torrent archive and noticed that the file `windows_xp_source.rar` is password protected? How did people unpacked the source code ?
