The more developments the more security issues and yet again another security patch. I therefore wanted to ask users what you really feel about this? It seems like a dog chasing it's tail and there is no end in sight.

Do you now also think that coders/developers are being manipulated by marketing and advertisers to try and sell you something more (Part with your cash).

The question is do I feel alone in this respect? or is simplicity the best after all. Hell me landed men on the Moon with less than 2MB of RAM!
