OneCare Gets Obscure Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Support

OneCare, Microsoft's consumer-based answer to Symantec and McAfee, is being bundled on a bunch of new PCs.

But before you get all excited, these are trial versions of the security software and the OEMs aren't exactly top-tier. Instead of the likes of Dell, HP and Leveno, how about MDG Computers, or LEO Gesellschaft, Wortmann, Olidata, Hyrican, Sotec and TICNOVA?

With partners like this, OneCare is sure to take over. Not.
