    "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.

  2. 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.
