Vista Security P!!-ing Contest
Feel free to file this under the "Duh!" category. Security company
PC Tools spent last week arguing that Vista
isn't all that secure
and that third-party tools are needed for safe computing.
Of course, there are some systems where you can more or less get away with
no add-on virus/malware protection. Of the four Macs I've bought and paid for
(then promptly gave away to my children), none have ever had security software.
Linux is the same.
But Microsoft has never said that Vista fits in that category. For gosh sakes,
isn't Redmond trying to sell us all Forefront or OneCare?
Microsoft responded to PC Tool's attacks by claiming the Vista security really
isn't as bad as PC Tools made out. Like in any good p!!-ing contest, PC
shot back, claiming that Vista security really is as bad as PC Tools
Children, children, let's try to behave, shall we?
