Microsoft & Service Packs & Internet
Why does a person have to use his computer online? The fact is that no company can protect themselves from virus writers. You have Service Pack upgrades but 4/5 of the service pack is nothing more than the company protecting itself from virus infiltration. There isn't much actual quality added in a service pack. It all has to do with internet corruption. For all we know, Microsoft along with Security programmers at Norton go out and create these viruses on purpose so that they can force people to upgrade their software and purchase their products.
I don't know many people that don't feel that MS has screwed them. As a programmer I wonder about my strategy. I think I might opt out of the internet and build stand alone applications. Life would be a heck of a lot more peaceful.
