When folks and PC bloggers figure out SRS policy you will realize how safe Windows XP has been since Service Pack 2.

That would certainly be nice, although I won't be holding my breath expecting it. Even as far back as Win2k, you could have reasonably-secure system just by running it with a normal user-level account - but from experience, even that is more hassle than most non-technical home users are willing to put up with.
