Windows Like a lot of people who have worked in the business, I find myself in conversations about computer security with people who are having problems or know people who have problems. I wrote this to save me from explaining the same thing over and over again to different people, and to save them the trouble of having to make notes as we talked. It was meant to be something you could give to a 'naive user' and have them be able to read and follow it more or less unaided, and while not being a complete guide, at least be something that made them more secure than before they got it.

Wow, so I wonder why I don't have to pay for that stuff on any other OS.

I wonder why when on my Mac if I slip up and click on an attachment I dont have to worry that my computer is gonna die.

I wonder why there are more security applications for Windows then any other type of application.

And why should I pay for Microsofts problems?

So because MS has a ton of money and their products still suck, I am being emotional? Yet we all sit here day in and day out and compare MS's products to products made by companies (Some of which like Ubuntu don't even have an income)

You don't find that odd? Come on now.

All I can say is that I showed my grandmother this page today and asked her if she wanted to do this to her machine so she could use Windows. She laughed cause she could not understand any of it.

All she could say is "Why don't I have to do any of that on the Ubuntu machine you set up for me" LOL! All I could do whas shrug my sholders.
