A post caught my eye. This is the URL to the
Teaser: Saying that "no trustworthy computing platform exists today,"
Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates told employees that
failing to make products less vulnerable to viruses,
instability and privacy breaches will jeopardize the firm's
future. "When we face a choice between adding features and
resolving security issues, we need to choose
security," said Gates, whose goal apparently is to make
computing seem as secure as delivery of electricity,
water, and telephone services. The Article is in Newsbytes.
[Note: They got it from the Washington Post]
My take: Don't bother to flame back at this. I think
the advocates already know the real answer to this dude.
