If you've been listening to Q/A from Snowden, Microsoft was given instructions to install a backdoor into their products. The backdoors already exist in Windows. NSA also requested Linus to activate a backdoor in Linux. Proof NSA pushing for backdoor. http://linux.slashdot.org/story/13/09/19/0227238/linus-torvalds-admits-hes-been-asked-to-insert-backdoor-into-linux They have also requested other distros create backdoors FreeBSD, OpenBSD, etc

Comment: Products from M$ are just not appealing (Score 0) 341 341

I don't think I would ever buy anything from M$ when I can get a better, safer product. I think M$ is going the wrong direction and the only way things will change if they fire and hire someone else to improve the company. M$ products lack and just aren't worth the money. Actually I think M$ junk should be freeware. Commercial software should work smoothly but through the years it's been more of a problem then open source products. Just isn't worth my time or money. M$ is second rate junk.

Obviously the educated security experts understand the definitions of security principles and how to avoid prison but that's about it. It's experiences and skills that a large corporation needs. Also if you think that experts are that great then hire the BS'ers and not the real professionals.
