Editorial After reading Adam Scheinberg's original article "The Paradox of Choice" and Kevin Russo's response, I want to add my personal comments to this discussion. I will quote Adam and Russo several times and pick up their arguments.

This is in a large part the problem with Windows. Windows ships with all the services enabled and available. Each one has its own security problems and without documentation and expertise it can be difficult for a novice (or even a cluey geek) to work out what to disable (DNS Client service in Windows is an example of this).

Precisely what security hole do you think disabling the DNS Client service closes up ?
