I think they should do this to everyone! Send your mechanic to jail for not repairing your car correctly on the first try!!! Just kidding of course. wouldn't it make more sense and be cheaper to build a task force (real one) that actually finds and punishes virus writers. I would love for all os's to be 100% secure but everyone knows that is impossible. No matter how smart the dev team is. They are not smarter than the rest of the world who are trying to hack it. Yes open source makes things a little more secure because more eyes are on the code. But there will always be that one little piece of code that only a handful of devs ever look at. I think that if these criminals were actually hunted down and punished for writing viruses and scamming grandmothers. That would help out more than this idea. Take that guy who was doing kiddie porn. They un-morphed they pictures and were able to get a positive ID on him. If that kind of work was put into hunting down virus writers and Nigerian princes they would disappear. just my $.02

YES the freakin driver sites are getting ridiculous. Every time I look for a driver the first 2 pages are some crap site that just pops you around from page to page only to try and install their crappy software to "give" you the driver for a small fee! If their site was not there the driver would be easy to find. With all these sites it makes the driver impossible to find.. therefore you need these sites to find them.. AHHH gonna throw up now.. then download this bad boy.

I think google gets their naming convention from Intel. This makes my life hell. my customers already have issues figuring out the difference between chrome and chrome os. What the hell are these companies thinking. Come on people. is still one of the top searches per day on google because these idiots haven't figured out the difference between the search box and the url box.
