Submission + - Will Windows security matter?

OffTheLip writes: AP Technology Writer Brian Bergstein discusses security advantages touted by Microsoft for their new Vista operating system . According to Symantec Corporation' Oliver Friedrichs, "Microsoft has made the core of the operating system more secure, but they've really solved, by and large, yesterday's problems". Many of the threats Vista addresses, such as worms, have already been handled within an fully patched version of Windows XP.
