Subject: lame bitching about xpsp2

It seems hard to beleive how people are tolerant and easy to forgive M$ 
for doing such mistake along their product release. How do you a tag a 
product 'professionnal' when it gets owned by 41 kb of malware code ? 
Not throwing the stone, but M$ has never been careful about security, 
and often been blamed, rightfully, for the high numbers of clones / 
owned machines are there, that disrupt the internet with malicious traffic.

 But somehow, people seems to turn a blind eye to the past, and actually 
pat Microsoft in the back for SP2. Short term memory ? Or is it really 
your ego that gets upset if you had to remove these winbox ?
Using M$ systems, they always managed to boost your ego, being an 
'administrator' and having 'all that  power' at the click of your mouse. 
In all fairness,  "I am good with windows" means "I know where to 
click", nothing more and shows how the typical M$ user is scared as hell 
of having ever one day to learn Unix, go through RFCs ( what for ? M$ 
don't even read em themselves ), and use the command line. ( Not DOS, a 
proper unix shell ). Why is that ? Well its similar at people who refuse 
somit in block before having tried it, its just plain stupidity and 
their ego gets hurts thinking they might have to start from zero.

Tough, but after MacOS, i am pretty sure even M$ will use Unix as a base 
in future windows versions, maybe without never saying admitting it, as 
they did so many times before. Longhorn boast "msh", the M$ shell. ( sh 
geez thats original ).

The goal of M$ is to archieve total control of information, and they 
already succeed, mainly due to fools that defend their business model, 
not having a clue what the rest is, and worse turning a blind eye to it, 
feeling safe in their 'clicking knowledge' comfort. M$ business model is 
a threat to our freedom, and i would like our childrens to have a 
choice, and not be formated the M$ way.

There is no patting, accolade nor felicitations to give to M$ for sp2. 
Its 6 years late, and has scared many consumer pc users, and has turned 
the internet in a giant malware collection. And i should thank em for 
sp2 ? No WAY. I am still getting nimda probes .....

Wake UP before its too LATE.
My 2 cents.
