...will be today:

"Microsoft spokesman Sean Sundwall acknowledged that the blame does
not really lie with customers.

"Ultimately, it's a flaw in our software," he said."


It just about makes me puke that the alleged "experts" are all happily
bubbling about Micro$oft's successful, narrow escape, while the rest
of the world continues to cope with Micro$oft's hubris and
intransigence.
