Microsoft's worst nightmare: Windows 7 deemed less secure than Vista

While Microsoft officials won't say it (at least not publicly), one of Windows 7's main selling points is likely to be that it's the "anti-Vista." It will be faster, smaller, more reliable and… less secure?

oh Microsoft... what have you done now?

As i said before i'd wait 4 months before trying out Window 7, now just as i predicted, not safe.

anybody who installs a beta operating system is inviting trouble

unless you are doing so in a manner where problems won't matter like an old pc or a blank drive, but these kids who install over their regular installations to be cool are inviting a a giant mess

Or installed on a blank partition...

I've got a parition for Vista and W7, and W7 has been working faster than Vista (although that's partly as it's a clean installation, Vista is slowing down now with the stuff I've got on it), so unless W7 craps out on me, its Windows 7 until August. :P

I think so

windows 7 is even a bigger failure than Vista

Its because of you tards that demanded less UAC.

The operating system is too insecure...then its too bothersome...make up your mind. you sound like pricks.

I predict im not an idiot and have never had a virus because im not stupid.

My point exactly. Make up your mind, do you want UAC or not?

However, I see MS point here:

"In order for malicious code to have gotten on to the box, something else has already been breached (or the user has explicitly consented)”

Am I missing something? It's pretty clear that the best security is to educate the user!
