Who controls your computer? If it's a Windows computer, not you. I swear I'll puke if I read one more cheery press release touting "Trustworthy Computing." Richard Stallman strips away the Newspeak and calls it "Treacherous Computing."...us old Linux geeks and other Free/Open Source Software users see the whole security issue as ridiculous, akin to devoting massive resources to developing bigger and better waders, instead of simply climbing out of the sewer. Call me cranky, but it sure seems stupid to continue to entrust one's data and business to a proven leaky, malware-friendly, anti-customer platform like Microsoft Windows.
