Windows "On Wednesday morning, I met with Microsoft co-president Jim Allchin, the man most directly responsible for Windows Vista and Longhorn Server, the company's upcoming client and server operating system releases. Allchin is a soft-spoken, intelligent man with decades of industry experience, the last 15 years of which were spent at Microsoft. I've run into Mr. Allchin at various events throughout the years, but the last time I sat down with him for a one-on-one meeting was in August 2001, when we discussed the then-upcoming release of Windows XP. With Windows Vista on track for a late 2006 release, Allchin hit the road to meet with members of the technical press."

"Other than that, no major issues with securiyt, ever." How could you tell you have no viruses in your system (active or dormant) when Antivirus softwares on the market fail to detect 80 % of infections. Besides, how can you be sure there are no security holes in your network when even the top windows servers do; finally how can you be sure no one is spying on you while you use your IE.

"if you're running XP w/SP2, a virus scanner, a non-IE browser, and a little bit of common sense is really all you need."
That's what I did but then my system went coco when I played a wmv file which turned to be a virus underneath.

In computer industry you cannot be sure of anything; but one thing you can which is to use the more trusted less demanding OSs like OSX or Linuxes not to be secure but to reduce your chances of getting nailed.
