Problem is, you can't engage in gunfights with 5-0, rob banks or pimp
your grandmother out on a *nix. On Windows you can do this in Grand
Theft Auto 3. Its going to be OS of choice for home users (and thus a
lot of businesses as people will be familiar with it) for a long time
to come. The XP firewall was a step forward for MS. Now they need to
turn it on and block by default giving the user an intuitive interface
they can point and click at: "I want to use kazaa, e-donkey, etc".
