Isn't that the cry that MS has used before - like with Windows XP and Windows Vista?

You're saying WinXP wasn't secure?

I don't know about it being the most secure, but I'll vouch for it's performance!
Never even tried the virtual XP Mode as all my programs are compatible with it already so why bother?
I have always set in place my own security measures & have never relied on MS for that.
I've been using it as my everyday OS since Jan & still love it just as much as when I first tried it!
Great DX10 Gaming performance & it's ready for the new DX11 games when they are made.

Great performance against what?

If a woman brings you home chinese takeaway each night then eventually knocks together an egg and ham sandwich, do you compliment her on your cooking?

Na leave Linux and open source out of this.

It attracts the loonies.

Who may, or may not be on the payroll of the Romanian branch of a certain Redmond based software firm. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
