    I'll maintain it until the day either Microsoft or me dies: they can have "Trustworthy computing" flying out their nether regions, but they're not going to be secure until they stop locking away everything on the box so that it only does what they want to let it do.

    Until the day I can install just the bare WinKernel and add what I need on top of that; I'm not going to believe that they have even the BEGINNING of a secure system.

    They have a reaaalll purty analog clock though (there's something that's just very, extremely, metaphysically wrong about a digital analog clock...). Oh, and that half-assed BeOS ripoff for the filesystem is really "innovative" too.

    hehe, reading BugTraq? Listboxes too.

    I guess you could find the same type of "remote access feature" in some more controls...

    The kernel itself already has some major misdesigns.... Or did they implement "SendMessage(WM_TIMER, ...)" via ActiveX? LOL....
    Oops, I didn't post that. That must have been somebody who haxxored my account... or something...

    Shhhh.... you're not supposed to tell people that the world's #1 Operating System is built on a patch system for a GUI covering up 16-bit code that's almost 25 years old!

    yepp, half of the world is sending me now the "New Microsoft Security Patches" every day. Too bad I'm not using windows anymore... My ISPs spam filter is failing badly...

    I need to get my own server back online soon so I can install my own server side spam filter.

    I should have thought before posting. I'd have used a special account only for mailinglists. But now it's too late... My InBox has now some 20-30 new messages from strangers every day and this week it exceeded my quota for the first time in my life too

    God bless Spamassassin!

    You guys think ANYONE working for MS (OS developers especially) actually comes into forums like this one to SEE how badly they get bashed? If you were an MS programmer, wouldn't you like to know what everyone thought of your progs? I know I would if I were them... It might make me realize how much I suck... LOL.

    Windows (noun): 32 bit extension and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company, that can't stand 1 bit of competition.

    Me to, and I didn't realize that sometimes they are like 150k apiece. Bastards!

    Oh and

    Probably because they are getting paid quite a bit of money and they don't care about online forums such as this.

    Now for me, I love online forums such as this and sitepoint because I love talking to people and helping others and receiving help.

    Why? Because Forms just look cooler in OS X...
