Windows Last week, security vendor Sophos published a blog post in which it said that Windows 7 was vulnerable to 8 our of 10 of the most common viruses. Microsoft has responded to these test results, which are a classic case of "scare 'm and they'll fall in line".

Why fully patched? not everyone has the luxury of a internet connection. How about as it comes out of the box or installed OEM on the PC

I have to agree. Even as a huge linux user & fan i have to say linux is the worst for this. You can do very little in linux without an internet connection. Unlike install applications in windows, having the file for an application does not always work due to dependencies.

Although you can see how the trend of the way all platforms are being developed has gone towards the assumption that all computer user have access to the internet.
