I hate people saying "This is so secure you don't have to worry". Being proud of your product is one thing, asking for trouble is another thing altogether.

I wish Microsoft would just launch the software and let it stand on its own two feet. Vista is not going to be a pushover for the boys and girls in 'viruses R us'. It has some seriously-effective security features, but saying it's bomb-proof is just silly, and doesn't help those who will be buying a computer for the first time.

had a word in his shell-like ear.

It is often thus when a huge company lets executives spout in public. They go off-message, and have to be hauled in front of sir, given a dressing down, and told to get back out there and clean up the mess they made. At least, that's what I think happened here.

Let's get Vista out in the userbase Jim, then we can all talk from practical experience.
