Privacy, Security, Encryption Dino Dai Zovi, the New York-based security researcher who took home USD b10000 in a highly-publicized MacBook Pro hijack on April 20, has been at the center of a week's worth of controversy about the security of Apple's operating system. In an e-mail interview with Computerworld, Dai Zovi talked about how finding vulnerabilities is like fishing, the chances that someone else will stumble on the still-unpatched bug, and what operating system - Windows Vista or Mac OS X - is the sturdiest when it comes to security.

OK: How do I, as a disabled person, use my computer if the screenreader can't get text from and send keystrokes to the processes I need to interact with?

I guess disabled people are rare, so we can ignore them (Microsoft can't).

What if I'm East Asian and want to use an IME to enter text into a privileged application?? We can ignore blind people, but not 1/3 of the world population.

Maybe the architecture could be a little different to support this. Perhaps that's something they'll fix in the next version of Windows.
