Most safe version of Windows ?
And Steve Ballmer says Vista is the most safest version of windows ever !!
Imagine this, vista has been cracked using, of all modules, the speech recognition module. You can speak commands which it will execute and thereby, if you visit a website that plays some song having some lyrics say "Erase System drive", booom your system drive is gone ;-)
I think they forgot the basic computer science tenet : Make the common things fast, the not so common things correct.
And as the old adage goes, there is nothing wrong in dreaming sky high (read DRM and crap in vista), but one should always have their feet rooted in ground.
While many will claim that windows is a target for hackers because of its extensive usage, how does one explain the fact that it can be hacked by its own speech module ?
Read Here, Here and Here for the complete story of how it was done.
While i do agree that a bug free program is an abstract concept, these kind of bugs, are at best, schoolboy level programming errors.
