Don't be sucked in by Vista's security promise

Microsoft Watch article

Vista’s most vaunted benefit for upgrading from XP is security. But as you can see, Vista’s security measures are a pain-in-the-ass. Usability suffers.

This proves that Microsoft does not know how to design good software. You can bet your life that Apple would handle security in a far less intrusive manner in OS X. You’ll see that when OS X becomes a real and practical security risk (perhaps in another couple of years)...

Enjoy OS X now...
