Microsoft's festive advice: Don't plug our PCs into the Web
By Charles Arthur, Technology Editor

24 December 2003

At least, the company says, not until you've been to the shops again to buy extra software, and protected the system from the deluge of viruses and worms that target the flaws in Microsoft's software as soon as you take it online [and so on]
Nothing new ever comes from MS!
...Then they should take responsibility for their user's losses.
Now you know why they are rather keen to have that condition that they're not responsible in any way for any losses in their EULA. As MS likes to think: caveat renter.
