Microsoft Links Malware Rates To Pirated Windows—Slashdot
I'll believe this when Microsoft releases all versions of Windows as Open Source under the GPL, and only makes a profit by selling support contracts—fat chance of that happenin' and you can bank on it.
In the past near-decade of using Windows based computers, the machines in my care probably have one of the lowest infections, compared toanyone I know, who is an "Average, gullable, luser". Do stupid things and your box is trashed, it won't make a difference whether or not you paid for it.
Hmm, if people are going to start blaming outdated pirated copies of windows for the spread of malicious software: how about Microsoft try ditching the pseudo-worthless WGA garbage and making the Windows and Native APIs more restrictive in what they can tamper with?
Oh yeah, just blame other people, real s.m.r.t. idea.
