Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Protect Microsoft Computers
The last days I was asked from some folks at work "something private", when they started talking about the actual virus threat and wanted to know if they had to update their anti-virus program.
Well, I don't recommend downloading a patch at Microsoft when the actual copy is not a legal one.
I also was asked about Linux, its safety and why Microsoft is such a shitty software with soo many failures and places a virus could hit.
Hmm.. since I converted from Windows to Linux, I sure can tell, that KDE is a pretty simple SUSE Linux Version and doesn't need so much change in thinking. Other Linux Versions are somewhat strange, but well, written from freaks *g* But let's have it clear - if Linux was used by as many people as Windows, there were security updates en masse, too.
For what does a Virus programmer make his Virus? Of course for the masses and not for some single freaks and daring users. So, that is what makes Windows more dangerous than anything else, and not (only) that it's written shitty or so.
