Perhaps not from a technical perspective, but I'd agree that for many 
people (for better or worse) anything that starts with "Microsoft" is 
automatically evil until proven otherwise. Since Cardspace is new, it's 
still perceived as evil by such people.

Since we're trying to market OpenID to people who perhaps don't have 
much knowledge about identity technologies, these initial connotations 
and associations are important.
