Good point. My safe came with a warranty and insurance of up to $10K for any loss due to the safe being broken into or damage to anything in it due to fire or water. If M$ claims that, "a customer's data couldn't be safer even if it was kept in a safe",
then perhaps they could provide a similar warranty and insurance policy.

hehehe, m$ claims are funny and far away from reality.
If they are so sure, why don't they take responsibility for damages caused by their products? Any warranty for m$ products? How much money does it make every time a windoze crash?

/me thinks that Kurt Vonnegut has explained it in this quote:

the big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart. -- Kurt Vonnegut

    Heh, it's a funny phrase, and beside how capable Microsoft is of
fixing their bugs (which I'm not talking about at all), the phrase hides
some other sutff in it:

On one side, by "Hackers", independently of what "Hacker" means, they are putting a name on a group of people, and saying that they are going to extint this group
of people, which not a really happy idea...

On the other side, either they will fix the bugs in every software out there, or they are recognizing that they are planning that the only software which will be running any computer out there will be Microsoft's, or at least based or using some Microsoft technology (the
technology to extinct hackers).

    heh, I just thought it was funny
