Computer Viruses
by TheEtruscan at 17:48 November 4, 1988

The last virus outbreak (wormvirus) caused an outage that lasted for over a day at my place of work.

How can Microsoft and Bill Gates be allowed to sit there and wallow in their riches when such imbecilic things happen?

If antiviral software is a growth industry, this is a very sad and deplorable situation.

While I may have no choice at work, I refuse to use antiviral software at home: it should not be necessary in a well-written operating system.

I just shake my head at how much Microsoft gets away with.
