"a Microsoft security official said businesses should consider investing
in an automated process to wipe hard drives and reinstall operating
systems as a practical way to recover from malware infestation."

IOW, Micro$oft has given up trying to make the kernel secure.

1/ Migration to Linux only costs money once. Higher Windows TCO is forever.
2/ "Shared source" is a poison pill. Open Source is freedom.
3/ Only the Windows boxes get the worms.

Now that they have their nasty TCPA , formerly known as Palladium,
Microsoft now think the best thing to do is to make you the untrusted
person in your own computer.

They won't 'have their nasty TCPA until/unless:
1. They actually get a working Windows Vista out the door
2. Manufacturers rush to produce Vista-ready TCPA-capable PCs, at much
higher cost than today's offerings
3. Consumers ditch WinXP and flock to Vista

Could be a few years yet.

Meanwhile, Linux-based operating systems and apps continue to eat away at
Windows' market share.
