Microsoft Security

by Volker Weber

At last week's Linuxworld Microsoft had a booth and handed out "Security Kits", which is basically a CD and a wrapper around it. Today I took the time to read the fine print: Free information, software tools and guidance.


For the small, medium, large organization. Not for the home user, not for developers. And I must not make "illegal copies" of the CD.



I'm not surprised. Microsoft quite often requires that downloads of promotional videos be delivered as 'exe' files, so that the user can be forced to accept an 'End User License Agreement' when the installer program is run. This is for product advertisements!

Can we say "oxymoron"?

"Microsoft Works" is another fine example.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
