Wasted security

Thank you Microsoft and Apple. In introducing computers to the public, you’ve done a good thing. I’d like to think that our world is improved because of it. But, I just wish you both hadn’t taken shortcuts with security like you did. Now the public expects to do things like they’ve always done in System 6 or Windows 3 and this leads to terrible security in the small LANs found all the small businesses and homes around the world. It doesn’t matter that you’ve got OSX or Win2k now. All that new security is wasted because the public doesn’t want to give up the convenience of the old, incorrect way of doing things. I guess I should be grateful that I am paid to worry about this, but it’s a pity that I have to.
