From the original MSNBC article:

"It disgusts me," said Isaiah Triforce Johnson, a longtime gamer and founder of a New York-based gaming advocacy group that, in response to the accusations, is now planning what is the first ever gamer-driven peace rally.

Submission + - Surprise, Microsoft Listed as Most Secure OS

david_g17 writes: According to a Symantec study reported by Information Week, Microsoft has the most secure operating system amongst its commercial competitors. The report only covered the last 6 months of vulnerabilities and patch releases, but the results place Microsoft operating systems above Mac OS X and Red Hat. According to the article,

The report found that Microsoft Windows had the fewest number of patches and the shortest average patch development time of the five operating systems it monitored in the last six months of 2006.
The article continues to mention the metrics used in the study (quantity and severity of vulnerabilities as well as the amount of time one must wait for the patch to be released).

Submission + - Why Windows Vista isn't ready for geeks

An anonymous reader writes: The boys over at Short-Media have a pretty convincing write up about Vista. They are advocating that all geeks stay away from the new MS operating system. "Games wouldn't run, applications wouldn't install, and a slew of Vista options could not be disabled even if it would've helped the PC's performance or my sanity; it all just went to hell." They also try to cut out some of the Vista's bloat by going over all the services and disabling the ones that are unnecessary. They were able to get their system from 42 Processes, 607MB paged and 532MB of RAM used to a lowly 29 processes, 368MB paged and 400MB memory usage; an accomplishment any true geek would recognize.
