Strange MS Statement

Thanks to hazzmat for sending this one my way: In this article a Microsoft exec by the name of Matusow states that the BIOS in many new PC's will pass 1/1/2000 but recorrupt itself exactly one year later. Server networks fed data from these recidivist PC's will be at risk. This all independent of the OS and application's compliance status. Hey, how come they say things like this abroad, but not here in the US ? Another reason to buy an iMac ?
