Microsoft is making it hard for independent virus vendors
Looks like it's time to put ad block back on for slashdot.
Why on earth would you have ever go to any website with ad-blocking disabled? I only trust people that I know personally. You know, real people, not Facebook friends, and certainly not a commercial interest like Slashdot.

A lot of companies are trying to connect with users for legitimate purposes. There's a lot of money to made and saved.
Quite right. That would be "Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a Mornay sauce, garnished with truffle pâté, brandy and a fried egg on top, and Spam."

Interesting. This makes me think that Apple may have discovered the "secret sauce", albeit accidentally. With each processor transition, Apple has provided a compatibility window that slammed shut at a point in time not too far from the transition; but, far enough to satisfy the vast majority of their customers. The Intel transition featured Rosetta, for a while (until 10.6), then dropped it. This effectively flushed the 'busted old shit' straight down the pipes.
I'd rather just believe that it's done by little elves running around.
