    Talking

    Microsoft? Security? To be honest I rarely use the two in the same sentence... I use them in adjacent sentences like...

    Microsoft? You want Linux for real security.

    Internet security is a hot topic nowdays, and as the e-commerce accelerates it's gonna be even more important. I think lack of security may lead to the fall of MS if they don't make better implementations in the future.

    But Bill and his mates probably have figured this out and will prioritize security. But if they don't MS will go down, like many monopolists before them that didn't follow the right trail or didn't meet user requirements.

    How about a sentence like this:

    "Hackers today easily penetrated Microsoft Security?"

    or

    "Analysts blame the virus on the lack of Microsoft Security"

    Like I said, I rarely use the two together... unless Im quoting a news story such as those examples.

    True, the words Microsoft and security don't go together. But what anti-Microsoft tech hasn't snickered at the "Microsoft Works" oxymoron?

    There's always "Microsoft Excel" as well...

    i.e. "Microsoft excel in the field of user-frustration, security holes and technical unsupport."
