Microsoft Spyware remover for Windows

Filed under: — menk @ 12:49 pm

So instead of actually solving the inherent flaws in Windows that make spyware a problem for virtually every Windows user, Microsoft is just buying a spyware remover. This makes no sense to me. Why can’t Windows actually just be made more secure? This strategy on behalf of Microsoft would be like General Dynamics making a submarine that leaks and instead of fixing it just buying Duct Tape for the existing customers.

It is not even clear at this point whether Microsoft will force customers to pay for this utility or whether it is provided at no cost. In any case even if GD provided their customers the duct tape for free it is unlikely the customers would be happy. So why are Windows users so willing to take the crap that Gates and company dish out?
