Windows Needs to Disappear

I recently wrote about security crises associated with Windows deployments. “On the topic of Windows,” a friend told me (citing this one article): “The writers there (and elsewhere) conflate spending with results. Security is part of the design and not an aftermarket add-on. The latter is a pointless and futile waste of time and money, but one which keeps Microsoft market share from bottoming out. [...] the Microsoft way of thinking permeates their design *and* implementation *and* especially their deployment.”

I still firmly believe that removing most Windows installations out there (ultimately all of them) would considerably improve computer security worldwide. Microsoft designs things not for security but the very opposite (remote access by the state). ?

    I do consider all the concepts you have introduced to your
    post. They’re very convincing and can definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for newbies. May just you
    please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you
    for the post.
