OneCare Upgrade Prepped

Like Vista, OneCare has seen its share of problems. This consumer security bundle was roundly criticized by users (including a Redmond magazine staffer who had no end of problems) for installation troubles and what some claim is substandard anti-virus protection.

Now, Microsoft is prepping OneCare 2.0, which can protect multiple computers and offers centralized backup for networked computers.

OneCare 1.0 might not have been God's gift to computing (for me, that would be craigslist), but name one 1.0 product from Microsoft that has been top-notch. Word, Excel, Windows, even NT had growing pains.

Because Microsoft is such a patient company, OneCare (version 3.0, at least) is still something that Symantec et al should be very worried about.
