"According to the security manager, security is only a small part of what Microsoft does, suggesting it does not have as much security expertise as established security vendors.
"Microsoft is not a security company. Security is important, but it's just a little part of Microsoft," said Edelmann."
This is not funny because it is all quoted from their so called Security manager, which should be a expert.
It is also not excusable. Given today's world many users have no clue themselves when it comes to security. If you are going to produce security products then you better have a team that knows what they are doing. If you have no clue, then pull it, and let the big boys that do have a clue have a go at it. Microsoft has clearly not shown a professional attitude towards computer security. Shame on them. The one company that should care, doesn't. Instead of naming their security product OneCare, they should of named it NoCare. It's appalling to know that Microsoft was just trying to look good, and they never planed to really release a good working OneCare product. They can't convince me otherwise. The real bad thing is they have
access to all of Windows code, and they still didn't get OneCare done right. They had the opportunity to shine above the rest, and they blew it.
The biggest difference between a car breaking down, or a Boeing plane tore up, is if the brakes on the car have a fault in them, they have a recall for that model car, with those same brakes if they find they need too. If the planes have major efects in the wings, etc, they are grounded till it is fixed. Plus they can even recall the whole line if they have too to be sure it was just one plane. No one likes doing this. But they DO IT anyway! No one will recall Vista, and the removal of OneCare is a B****. I know it is because I have that crapware on my computer. The biggest thing that bothers me is the fact of the many people will think they have a nice safe computer, and as always, the major News networks will bury, or kill the article on Microsoft's blundered OneCare crapware, and the public will go on thinking they have a safe computer.
I realize it is impracticable to recall computers. But if you visit your neighborhood computer store, I bet you that many will have the OneCare running on their brand new boxes. Plus the Reps will be shoving all the good words they can come up with down your throat. When you ask them how good it is, be sure to inform them that not even Microsoft's Security Experts recommend Window's Live OneCare.
Microsoft: OneCare should not have been rolled out
