    Actually I fail to see why _I_ have to pay with my valuable free time
    for the rotten software other people sell and get rich of.

    They sold the products so they should support their customers.
    Especially MS which is claiming that the Open Source community can't
    supply the kind of support that MS can supply. Now MS is begging for the
    support of the community TO DO THEIR WORK. This is pathetic.

    I'd rather take the time to _REPLACE_ any operating system that needs
    the additional investment of a personal firewall for anybody I
    personally know with a secure by design system that doesn't come with
    all doors open and doesn't require to update three different levels of
    security (OS, virus scanner and firewall).
