You install software from sources you cannot verify. No OS is secure from stupid users.


These are the same people who respond to phishing and place coffee cups on the DVD tray.

As for Windows (especially Vista), as long as you have the latest updates installed, there's really not a lot of exploits out there anymore than can simply install themselves remotely without requiring the user to do something specific.


I am still getting the same amount of repair work from Vista that I am getting from XP users. So, there must be quite a few stupid windows users.
