1) While I believe that Microsoft is the Tool of Satan, they aren't
responsible for all, or even most, of the entire Y2K problem. A
lot of programs were written badly.
2) No, that's not all that's needed for the Y2K problem *in general*.
Those other programs often have their own code that's screwed up.
3) I do not know the effect of this change -- I haven't seen this
letter on any Internet hoax pages, and it looks plausible and
harmless enough. My guess is that it may prevent a few problems
with Windows itself, but probably not all.
