Microsoft Makes Another Half Assed Attempt at Improving Security

Yes folks, they are at it again! Microsoft is releasing fixes for XP and Server 2003 that will make it easier to apply patches, as if double clicking the icon and saying yes weren’t simple enough.

They are, again, abandoning anyone that is running an older version of windows for this fix. Tens of millions of people out there are still running on Windows 95, 98 and ME. A lot of people chose not to upgrade to XP thanks to the “Big Brother Code” placed in the operating system.

If Microsoft really means to improve security, it should fix all that old code that they keep in the current operating systems and send out the patches to all the other old OS’s. That would be an act of sincere interest in security for the average computer user.
