How very innovative - oh no, MS has been doing that since they dubbed QDOS "MS-DOS".
And yes, QDOS meant Quick and Dirty Operating System, and yes, it was "bought" by MicroSoft. The 50k US$ was not the initial amount (that was considerably lower).
Secure...?What is really worrying is the [quote]provisions for “recognized,” or “protected,” sites which will allow users to go straight from the Windows taskbar to these sites without having to open IE first.[/quote]
Knowing the way MicroSoft implements security, these [quote]recognized, protected sites will be treated more like traditional Windows applications[/quote] will open a whole new range of possibilities. For hackers, that is.
