Report Casts Doubt on Vista's Security Impact
According to this eWeek article, Vista's built in security is so complex and unfriendly that a lot of users will get scared by it and put off adopting MS's new OS altogether. I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft decides to lessen security features on Vista so that people will not run away from it.
In a research report published May 8, analysts at Boston-based Yankee Group said that Microsoft's latest attempt to better secure its dominant OS is significantly off the mark. Based on feedback garnered by the experts from a wide range of software developers already testing preview versions of Vista, Yankee Group said that the intrusive nature of the security features could turn off IT administrators and users alike.
