Gates about security...

You'll find a few quotes in this c-net article. There's a lot of bla-bla. I'd love to ask Bill Gates to install a Windows XP machine for me with broadband connection. Why? Because as soon as the Windows XP installation has found the network card, the computer is attacked. I had the installation of my sister's PC fail two times until I even guessed that this could be the problem. However, after having installed Windows XP: How do you get your insecure system up-to-date without a network connection? How do you download a firewall software without a network connection? You guess right: You need a Mac OS X or Linux machine with a CD-burner. ;-) (Or a patched and secured Windows XP machine, of course... But that's not really an alternative, is it?)
