Windows It's been only a mere six months since its first unveiling, but Microsoft has already announced that Windows Phone 7 has been released to manufacturing. This means device makers can start tuning the software to their hardware, leaving plenty of time to release devices before the holiday season.

Well in my experience it is only easy to kill a Windows machine if it isn't locked down properly.

The real problem is that too many organizations are lax about user permissions. Admin accounts are given out like candy and outside devices are allowed to connect to intranets. Then on top of it all you have organizations that take months to roll out security updates and are too cheap to upgrade to Win7.

As for that Mcafee upgrade fiasco that was no surprise to those of use who have been saying to avoid Mcafee and Symantec for years. That wasn't the fault of Windows, it was the fault of AV software from a company known for its bloated and intrusive software.

Mcafee can't even be relied upon to uninstall properly. Just look at this guide at Kaspersky:
