More bleeding flashing popups, how do the MS users get through a day without
some stress therapy? Then she says MS intended that the user wouldn't be
able to switch them off, so if they had chosen a security product from
anyone not MS or not reccomended by MS, the pop ups would carry on day
after day year after year.

I presume that means that if MS users choose Symantec or MsAfee the popups
will harrass them to an early grave for being so insolent. Use Firefox as a
browser and perhaps MS will pop up 1/2 a dozen yellow windows proclaiming
you a bastard for not using IE7.

I wonder what the penalty is then for attaching to a Linux fileserver?
