Windows If you shout something loud enough and many people are saying it, does it become true? Some groups of people (include tech journalists and Linux advocates, such as Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols) have a psychological need to find Vista lacking. Mr. V-N has predicted that Vista will have all manner of problems, so his clear interest is to point out everything that is wrong with the OS. Who cares if he has to even make some stuff up?

Software Restriction Policies are not some verbal thing. They're a feature of the OS. If you set it to "Default Deny" then the OS won't LET them run anything from those bad websites. There is some administrative overhead to this, because they can't install something they need without administrator approval.

Your users run as Limited Users anyway, though, right? If not, then nothing I'm saying applies and no OS can guarantee you security under those circumstances.
