Microsoft's statements laughable

A News.com reader writes that recent stories about Microsoft dealing with security and reliability might as well be called humor pieces.

 

  
Microsoft's statements laughable

In response to the Jan. 22 article "Industry says ho-hum to Netscape suit":

I think it's wonderful that News.com has decided to begin presenting humor pieces on a regular basis. Just this past week, you've presented stories on how Bill Gates is going to make security the top priority for Microsoft, and a pitch by another Microsoft executive, Craig Mundie, about how computers need to be reliable.

I find these stories funny considering that Microsoft's Windows is probably the most unreliable and insecure platform available.
