And how about the children that are too young for the vaccine? Or the ones with allergies to common components of vaccines (such as eggs). I believe both of those represented children in the story who ended up with a measles infection. That is also one of the reasons we depend on herd immunity.

Windows 7 To Be Called ... Windows 7 772

An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft's Mike Nash came forward today in a blog post on the Windows Vista Blog and revealed the official name for Windows Code Name '7' as simply 'Windows 7.'

As much wonderful sense as this makes on first glance, it seems as if Microsoft's marketing teams pulled this number out of thin air: the Windows 7 kernel is version 6.1, and there's no way Windows 7 adds up as the seventh release of Windows anyway."
