I hear that the new windows, "vista", costs $400 for the lowest
worthwhile version (one above "home"). And that would be the bare
beginnings of the expenses involved.
Ever listen to the Kim Komando Show? (She's a windows guru with
a radio show and website.) Apparently, windows runners spend
half their time and money ineffectively dealing with spyware and
viruses and worms and trojans.
I think that the same companies that provide the software that is
supposed to protect people from these things are the ones that
create them in the first place.
And windows dutifully produces OS after OS that any teenager with
too much time on his hands can break into.
It's an excellent scam.
