That's slightly amusing, though I'm sure this means there'll be a flood of virii coming down the pipe in a few months. It might be time for me to reinstall RedHat 9.0.

This is a major issue, many of my friends are already going to switch to linux and if the problem is not resolved I may also do the same.
nah if they properly code with security in mind it shouldnt cause any problem look at linux you have access to the kernel source but kernel hacks are almost non-existent oh wait security in windows is a joke well better start paniclol couldnt resist

im downloading it right

best comment on this whole issue

(...) it's important to hold onto the fact that this leak is only important because Microsoft claims its source code is hugely important secret sauce/coke formula. Whereas it's not really, it's just stuff, and not all of the stuff either.

And concluding on:

Quote:

if you propose to continue working in the IT industry, and somebody offers you a look at the source, just say no. Remember - if you learn too much about the internals of Microsoft products, you may find yourself unable to work for anybody except Microsoft. Yikes.



took it from the gentoo forums...
