    Re: Windows Security Provided by this Poster

    They said they'd be doing quite a bit to improve Windows Security, this must be what they came up with.

    Sort of like the stickers that say "Warning: this house/car protected by this sticker" that you can buy instead of an alarm.

    Interesting concept

    I ordered 2 kits (150 posters)
    I like the pictures- I'm going to cut out the pictures and use them on my door :D

    I ordered a free set for my office. Now I can gaze up and remind myself why i have a mac......

    Also, I can be credited with instituting a secure computing policy in the office...

    Thanks Microsoft.

    As of right now the ordering site for the posters is down, you cannot order posters, you can only download them. I hope this is up and running soon, they would make great white elephant gifts.

    Is this a new promo theme for MS?

    "Welcome to Microsoft Country"

    No bill, even though I couldn't believe this was from Microsoft.. it is for educational purposes however.

    Mr. Anderson

    Damn, they don't have anymore posters....or at least the ordering is shut down :(

    I wanted to get some and give them to my IT guys at work :D

    Great stuff!

    I'm surprised no one has posted their own Photoshopped versions of signs that more "accurately" describe Microsoft and where they can put their virus-infested software. :)

    If they really wanted to educate the public on how to protect themselves from these viruses, they only need one sign that simply says "Buy a Mac." ;)

    They were made on a Mac :) (quite some time ago too!)

    "Hackers Ahead" and "Internet Worm Crossing"... finally some honest advertising from Microsoft!

    Get yours before MyDoom uses MS's own product failings to attack them this coming week :)

    Where's the security poster that says "Do Not Use Windows"
  21. macrumors regular

    Bored, and it took me 3 minutes.. not worrying about making it pretty.

  22. macrumors newbie

    I think its funny...

    I must say the posters are actually good. And they can be funny too... just like all the stuff Microsoft makes. Except, its not that funny; especially when it hurts you. I am thinking that this posters will do more damage than good. But don't get me wrong, the concept is funny. Microsoft does not have a good sense of humor.

    What the hell is that Microsoft?

    Is anyone really getting those?


    :eek: :eek: :confused:

    *The ordering site has been shut down for maintenance purposes.

    Maybe they caught a virus. :D Probably not, since the posters were created on a Mac. :p

    Do they even think before doing this stuff? Do they realize how rediculous this is? :rolleyes: Duh!!!
