Like we're so surprised.
and this is new because....
Goes back to working on rock-solid Panther/Tiger...
[Edit]: Oh, here's my favorite part of the article: M$ makes a nightmare OS, complete with more holes than swiss cheese, which it sells for ungodly amounts of money... THEN turns around and offers OneCare for a yearly fee to make more money. I'm sorry, anything M$ puts out to fix its own f-ups needs to be free.
Which of course reminds me of the Dilbert in which the engineers are offered a cash bonus per bugfix they do on their own code.... so Dilbert simply begins compiling random keystrokes.
what a surprise, Microsoft a screamin ninny!
If I had the time, I would live to find all the different articles and announcements of "CRITICAL FLAW" and make a collage.
Everything is a critical flaw with them.
Everyone needs to abandoned the Critically Flawed ship of S.S. Microsoft and be rescued by The Good Ship Apple.
Microsoft ORIGINALLY had a flaw warning system in place, but the White House stole it! Always orange and yellow never blue or green
I have the Dilbert book with that strip in it. IIRC, Dilbert asked Ratbert to dance on the keyboard; instead of creating bugs, Ratbert ends up writing a web browser.
Should be called Windows NoOneCares.
Yep. That's why Microsoft is such a pathetic company. They can't get any bigger than they are now, they've got no place to go but down, so they create this utterly ridiculous service in a pathetic attempt to grow some more.
This is getting to be like the many crying wolf too often. The real news of interest would be if Microsoft would announce that they have found and fixed all of the flaws in XP.
Exactly. I bet 3/4 of Windows users don't update any of their software so it will have a lackluster effect...
And because so many of it's users fail to update with the new flawed version, in two months hackers will have created the virii to exploit the current critical flaws.
i just updated my laptop PC last night. i tell you i feel so scared when im online on this. distgusting piece of software. *cries a little*
And in other news of the obvious: The sky is blue, water is wet and fire burns.
The sky is blue?!?!
Will Microsoft ever say "We have fixed all the bugs."?
That'll be the day I stand up and take notice.
I'm going to jump in and play devil's advocate here. MS have started doing monthly security updates rather than lots of little patches to make it easier for people to know there's a patch and the press to report it. Apple do the same thing (tho thankfully they are less critical and get less publicity)
The Windows users on SP2 will get this automatically since it's configured to update automatically - just like our Software Updates go and check. And MS are now setting up a system where you can download patches for other MS products at the same time - hmm, sounds familiar...
This is just the regular monthly security update - it just happens to be critical in more than one version of Windows this month.
And with a little hack, you can get monthy viruses, etc delivered to your computer! yay
F* that, since when is water wet ???
"Microsoft: Where Do You Want To Go Today? ..... erm, how about software update, there's a few patches and updates you might want to download first, uh..."
