Yet another reason

June 2006:

Microsoft senior vice president Bob Muglia opened up TechEd 2006 in Boston Sunday evening by proclaiming that Windows Vista was the most secure operating system in the industry. But a bold statement can only go so far, and much of this week’s conference has been spent reinforcing that point.

December 2006:

About a month after the business release of Windows Vista, and a month before its consumer release, hackers and security researchers have uncovered at least six major security flaws in Microsoft’s brand new operating system, the New York Times is reporting.

Considering this, the draconian DRM (which is deeply flawed as a system), and the hefty hardware demanded, I wont be upgrading to Vista.

    Just a minor correction: switching to Vista would not be an “upgrade.”

    > switching to Vista would not be an “upgrade.”

    Oh, I so agree.

    To which Apple replies: “launchd”

    Really,

    Bob Mugalia wants to throw away any credibility he may have had, let him do it.
