I don't usually double-reply to one post, but one more important
thought comes to mind:

Again, nuts.

The problem is *not* the disemination of information about exploits.

The problem *is* Micro$oft's repeated, ongoing inability to deliver
anything that's not shot full of holes the moment it hits the shelves.

"Trustworthy Computing"?

Nuts again.

How long ago did billg and steveb foist that bunch of PR cr*p on the
media?

And is *anyone* better off today than they were before "Trustworthy
Computing" was shilled off onto the computing world?

In a word: No!
