The Good Old Days when M$ could ship crapware with no security at all are apparently returning in M$’s mind…“Microsoft has failed to deliver a fix for a remotely exploitable flaw in Internet Explorer 8, despite being informed of the vulnerability in October 2013.” With a quarter of the world’s PCs wide open to remote exploitation and knowing this information would be publicized. M$ didn’t care enough to patch the vulnerability even though several Patch Tuesdays have passed.
Do you really want this company in charge of any of your IT? Use software made by people who care like Debian. Not only do they care to ship good software but they allow you to examine, modify and distribute the software at no charge.
