They are no more serious than before.

I don't believe for one second they are more serious about security than before. They might be more serious (i.e. concerned) about profits than before. Meaning that people that would never have thought about a Mac, and to a lesser extent Linux in the past are buying them because they are sick of viruses and worms with Windows.

Most likely, as in the past, only honest people will be affected, and in a bad way, by this. It won't take long for virus and worm writers to get around MS's new "security."
