Harry Chimes in on Oscar Noms

Let the opinions begin.

Hey folks, Harry here… Well RETURN OF THE KING leads things with 11 Nominations with MASTER AND COMMANDER (soon to be rereleased btw) coming in second with 10 nominations. However, for me… the big winners have to be CITY OF GOD, TWILIGHT SAMURAI and TRIPLETTES OF BELLEVILLE – as they all picked up nominations that nobody thought possible. Well, let’s take a look at the categories…

Windows More Secure?

I think not.

A high-volume system like (Windows) that has been thoroughly tested will be by far the most secure, Gates told the audience at the Developing Software for the future Microsoft Platform conference…

“To say a system is secure because no one is attacking it is very dangerous,” said Gates, referring to operating systems that have a smaller share of the desktop market, such as Apple’s Macintosh OS and the open-source software Linux.

Yeah right. Read [[Computer Security and Operating Systems]] again for why this is just a bunch of hooey.

…”hackers are good for maturation” of the platform, because they have forced the company to develop new inspection techniques for the code.

Two questions Bill… what are you smoking, and did you bring enough for everybody?

I guess all the Windows users out there should extend the hand of friendship to the hackers out there for helping to mature their operating system.
