Comment Re:Windows 10 = Malware (Score 2) 224

Wrong plural. "Malware" like software, hardware, firmware, and information, is a mass noun. You do not have "two informations" nor do you have "two malwares" or "two softwares" or "two firmwares" -- you have two pieces of information, two pieces of malware, two pieces of software, and two pieces of firmware.
