Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, this was to be expected: an anti-virus company complaining that Microsoft's Security Essentials - by far the best anti-virus tool for Windows - is anti-competitive. Microsoft recently began offering MSE as an optional download via the optional Microsoft Update service (which is not Windows Update), and Trend Micro (a patent troll) is going into boo-hoo mode over it.

So Microsoft is "the best" and Trend Micro are a bunch of cry baby patent trolls?

I didn't even read the rest of the article. I couldn't take it seriously after that.

But I will say one thing: regardless of Trend Micro's reputation, be it positive or negative, nothing, AND OH I DO MEAN NOTHING, could ever convince me to trust Microsoft with anything remotely related to security, considering its absolutely abysmal reputation in this regard.

Cheers.
