+ - German goverment warns of Windows 8->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The German newpaper "Die ZEIT" has published an article, saying the German Government has officially warned from using Windows 8. (No, this is no joke.) The warning was more issued towards the official agencies. The main reason quoted was that Windows 8 has NSA backdoors for espionage.
"Windows 8 is an unacceptable security risk for companies and authorities, experts warn the government. The so-called Trusted Computing is a back door for the NSA."
(translation).

Just last year the German Government has given an official warning not to use MS Internet Explorer, for similar reasons, that it was not secure."
