And More Microsoft Security Patches

  ezypcy 16:50 09 Aug 2006

It's that time of the month again; 12 more security
patches from MS(8th aug).
Ten for Windows and two for Office.
No other retail product would be accepted with this
on going farce.'Not Fit For Purpose' in reality.
Interesting,when one re-visits the claims made in
the 'Take tour of XP'.

This software should be financed purely by donations,
like all good throw away software.

but then not many other products have thousands of people trying to crack them 24 hours a day 7 days a week 52 weeks of the year

if someone tried long and hard enough no doubt they would find a weakness in security for your house or your car

does that then make them not fit for the purpose they were brought for?

I popped into the bank and the manager said -
"Sorry Sir,it was your money that the robbers ran
off with,last night,from the vault"!!!

Considering Window's is used worlwide, and that some very clever people worlwide are trying to hack it - then I don't envy Microsofts situation.

But at least Microsoft are fighting back at a cost of billion's of $. And I would commend them for this rather than criticise.

I somehow doubt that financial conclusion...:-)

What the hell are you on about? OS's are fluid - they need monitoring and updating. In an ideal world an operating system would be released and the writers could move on - thing is, it doesn’t work that way.

You need a reality check, pronto.


ps...welcome to our planet.

It's comical that this company totally protects
it's inferior code,purely for financial gain and
world domination,instead of releasing the code.
By doing so,we end up with this global monopoly.
Resulting in high costs to users and to corporate business.

Anyway,this is a dated business model for the future.
Software in the future will be supplied ,similar
to borrowing books from the library.Why buy it!

Also many will look to companies like Google.

I am always amazed by the MS 'blinkered loyalists'.
Vista is guaranteed to look pretty but will be more of the same and very expensive.But why?

'Resulting in high costs to users' can buy a computer with 17" TFT and Windows XP home for less than £300....and that is expensive?....welcome to planet Earth O great traveller.
