How About A Change Of Track Record First

Microsoft cannot lecture anyone on security until they change their track record on security. Even the six year old XP system has suffered mayhem in the last few years. I realize Vista is supposed to be latest and greatest in security according to Microsoft, but they will have to earn the trust of customers, and they will not do that overnight. I find it appalling that they would attempt to tell other OS'es how to be secure.
