    The VIRUS, and general MS bashing


    (Sorry if this is old ground. i haven't read all threads yet)

    Stefan Grünwedel's DevX article came the closest yet to drawing attention
    to the biggest factor in the extent to which the virus affected the world...
    that the most popular email client had such a security hole.

    I am a user of MS stuff (...who isn't?) and i really like some of the stuff,
    but to me nothing speaks louder about MS's obsession with market control
    than the fact that they left such security holes in their flagship technologies.
    A little less aggressiveness in the market, a bit more thought to security,
    and this virus wouldn't have gotten to first base.

    Taken together with the Word macro viruses and IIS security holes, the world's
    most disruptive viruses and hacks have all exploited Microsoft security holes.
    Is it wrong to hold them at least a bit accountable for these problems?

    You're an idiot. You know that people complain when software doesn't have
    the power, then you ***** about it when it does.

    Jesus, get back on your LINUX box.
