Subject: Microsoft plans tighter security measures in Windows XP SP2

 Microsoft spent $200M over six month securing Windows 2003 last year before
release.  Look how much good it did.  Total rewrite would have been a better
use of money and time.

My $0.02

Bribing is not a panacea. If you look in history you will see that empires
go up and then disappear, people go on the scene and then disappear. The
number of m$ bugs increases, though.

As a .bg poem says:
"I fell, another one comes in my place, what the fsck does one person
matter" - full poem at -, don't
take worms in the computer sense ;)
