Attack fears slow down development of new products?
Security concerns are slowing down the development of new products at Microsoft, as the software company continues to move on with its more ambitious projects such as Windows Longhorn, a company executive admitted this week.
The need to make its current software more resilient to attack is part of the reason that several projects have fallen behind schedule, Senior VP Bob Muglia said.
"It's absolutely slowed things down," Muglia said at the Microsoft Management Seminar in Las Vegas. "This work is making our software come out not as quickly."
