    M$ Security system

    Microsoft announces security system
    Windows OneCare will be a paid-for subscription service aimed at
    keeping users' PCs healthy and secure

    Good idea or another shameless move by M$ to take over our computing lives? I have to admit I've found their anti-spyware software to be as effective an it's competitors.

    I won't be giving any more money to them, I feel my computer is now more safe and more secure than Windows and it's free!

    Yeah, thanks to directhex's tutorials!

    I'm using Debian Sarge and after asking quite a few questions have it set up pretty well I think. All I need to do now is test a 3D application to see if the drivers are working OK. I have UT2004 so will try that at some point.

    I must say, it was a lot easier than I thought, even though I did need to ask a few questions, but tbh, I wouldn't be as knowledgable with Windows if I didn't ask questions!
