I thought about this... One thing I wonder is: are purchasers of ESU
the same group of people that are likely to run newfangled security
software like WireGuard? How likely is there to be an overlap? I
realize my question implies, "not very likely," but I really don't
know too much about who Microsoft sells this stuff to, so if you have
any insights, I'm all ears.
