Vista Security

PCWorld has a decent transcript from an interview with Microsoft’s Ben Fathi at the RSA Conference on computer security this week in San Francisco. The topic? Windows Vista security and Microsoft’s aims to have half or less then half the number of bugs that XP had in its first year of release. Seemingly, they’re still on track for it, despite the recent flurry of patches and bug reports.

I had another go at Vista today, this time on a new AMD-based Dell Inspiron with a half gig of ram – if you’re thinking of a laptop solution, do yourself a favour and get AT LEAST a gig of ram if not more. If not, I reckon security issues aren’t going to be your only concern.
