Yeah. I don’t get a headline, but I said it a couple times this week.

Maybe I should hold more press conferences…/s

Competition? That would damage the economy! How are the fat cats supposed to stay fat?!

Maybe, but only if windows users continue to not learn how to use their PCs

Just because you know what the buttons do doesn’t mean you know how to use it.

I keep clicking the link that says “free crypto in your account claim now” and its not doing anything except making my screen go black randomly. I need one of my grandchildren to help me when they visit in a month

Shitty security practices, and a lack of good security software is to blame for that

L take, taking control away from the user and into a closed source black box leads to breach after breach

EmperorHenry@infosec.pub on 07 May 04:05 collapse

Only if the closed source black box has your information in the first place

Just never digitize anything and your Windows install will be secure. Got it.

Users aren’t responsible for the plethora of security issues Microsoft regularly releases.

EmperorHenry@infosec.pub on 07 May 04:04 collapse

They are if they have shitty security practices and never set up good security software

If it’s the user’s responsibility to secure the operating systems they use then isn’t it both illogical and immoral for Microsoft to keep the source code secret?

EmperorHenry@infosec.pub on 08 May 05:05 collapse

I agree with that, force microsoft to make windows open source.

why did the millitart hand everything over to them then?

They don’t give people want they want in Win 11, and become a security threat in the meantime. Brilliant

You mean It’s a bad idea to put government secrets in the cloud of a large company whose only working department is their PR department?
