I have ranted before about the "Windows everywhere" strategy. Not only does it just not make sense for the world - it is insane.
We seem to have gotten to the point where most people are comfortable with patching and updating their computers on a regular basis. Well, not most, about 50% evidently. But how often to hospitals patch their blood pressure/oxygen monitor machines? How often do you patch your palm computer?

This rant brought to you by the news that a denial of service vulnerability exists in Media Center.
