Now THERE’S A Good Security “Fix”

Microsoft announced a rather serious flaw with their Word product today which apparently affects every version of Word from 2000 through the most recent releases, Macintosh versions and Word Viewer included. There is no known patch, nor is there a work-around and none of the big anti-virus companies have a fix or even a virus signature yet. Microsoft’s solution (and here I’m paraphrasing their bizspeak): don’t use Word until we fix it. My solution? Well, it’s rather simple – OpenOffice.
Bwahahahahah. Tell me again, how is a worldwide computing monoculture a good thing?
