Microsoft OneCare

As reported by John Leydon, Microsoft is going to offer a home PC health care service called OneCare. It will include anti-virus, anti-spyware, disk de-fragmentation, and a back up and restore utility.

As reported by John Leydon, Microsoft is going to offer a home PC health care service called OneCare. It will include anti-virus, anti-spyware, disk de-fragmentation, and a back up and restore utility. Actually sounds like a good idea to me.

Two things. First, it is so unfair to the rest of the journalists in the security space that Leydon takes advantage of his five hour head start on the English speaking world to scoop every news story. :-)

Second, in case you have trouble puzzling out the riddle at the end of his postings he is saying that OneCare, if pronounced in a certain way sounds like "Wanker". Which is really funny. Only a Brit would have thought of that!
