Your "They finally reveal a double-faced attitude." is what shows the 
lie, roy.  Having never taken the position that you say they "could" 
have taken, the conclusion is false.

A completely wrong analysis, roy.  If Microsoft were to lag Symantec and 
MacAfee and any others in guarding against flaws, their OneCare business 
would be in jeopardy immediately.  You have to be a real idiot to think 
that MS would not be very highly focused on protecting their huge 
revenue stream from Windows.  Managed code in Vista and .NET is one 
avenue to show the world that Windows is determined and OneCare is just 
another.  You unix trogs carp and sneer, but Mr. Softee is working away 
and it shows.  The linuxers don't show anything, they say they are 
invulnerable because they are so much more intelligent than the herd of 
"Windozers" who are the butt of their jokes.  But who would YOU rather 
deal with when it came time to pay the piper?  Some smug dweeb with his 
insults or the feel-your-pain Microsoftie working diligently to fix the 
problem?  The public takes notice and that is why you guy have no 
traction.  Not that you could ever come to see that!  LOL!!!
