That's a nicely worded brainwashing statement. How about having the next
generation believe truth not what you want them to believe. Do you by
chance work for Cisco or Microsoft "They're not really vulnerabilities
believe me..."

One acronym: BSOD.  Why have users learned what it is, and grown accepting of
seeing one?  Do you know any Windows users who have *never* encountered one?
How many Windows users would believe that before Microsoft, vendors actually
would take a *single* crash reported by *one* user seriously enough to
investigate and produce a bugfix, and that vendors would escalate to the point
of sending developers to the customer site if a system crashed multiple times
and no fix was in sight in a week?

For all its monopolistic abuses, the single worst thing Microsoft has done
for the computer industry is lowered user expectations regarding software.
