I just *loved* the final comments and how the author used the M$ spokesman's
own comments to hang him.

<fair use>
Mr. Schare of Microsoft does have one suggestion for those who cannot use
the latest patches in Service Pack 2: buy a new personal computer. By the
same reasoning, the security problems created by a car's broken door lock
could be solved by buying an entirely new automobile. The analogy comes
straight from Mr. Schare. "It's like buying a car," he said. "If you want to
get the latest safety features, you have to buy the latest model."

In this case, the very latest model is not a 2001 Internet Explorer, but a
2004 Firefox.
