Part of the problem IS MicroSlop. They've finally learned, with Windows 2000/XP/2003, how to build an operating system that doesn't crash. They still have issues with building an operating system that can't easily be broken into.

But in cases like this, I think the problem is more of a social problem than a technical problem. - Apple Valley, CA -
