Subject: April 1st is here (joy). now improved

I think this posting shows the far superior way Windows prevents
security issues like this. As the name says, it does not intend to allow
you open access to the garden (which becomes even more sophisticated
once TCPA is there...). 

With Windows, you obviously stay in-house and watch the carrots
through... right, a Window! So as you do not have physical access to
them, a root compromise is reliably prevented. I think this is also the
primary reason that ActiveX - by its very core design - does not require
a sandbox to be secure. Or have you ever seen a sandbox inside a house?

As you can see, openness has its disadvantages ;)
