Don't pretend that getting rid of Saddam was a good thing when you put him there in the first place.

And let's not forget the last time you tried to "help" Iran you ousted an elected leader, eventually leading to the current situation in Iran.

It's the "world policing" that got us here in the first place, so maybe it's finally time to step back and let things run their course.

I don't disagree that Microsoft has cleaned up their act or that they're products have fewer vulnerabilities, but I wanted to clarify something.

The numbers you are quoting are discovered vulnerabilities, not vulnerabilities.

One could argue that the Firefox team, for example, are simply better at finding vulnerabilities or that because Firefox is open source it allows for more vulnerabilities to be discovered.

Dreams are free, but you get soaked on the connect time.
