If Microsoft Can't Even Get Hotmail To Work, How Can We Trust Them With .NET?

from the simple-answer:-we-can't dept

Of course, for the Microsoft haters in the crowd, this one seems pretty obvious, but Salon has an article looking at the fact that Microsoft can’t even get their act together on Hotmail, the free email service – and yet they expect us to trust them with all of our personal data with their .NET scheme. This has been talked about in plenty of places before, but this is a good (semi) “mainstream” press article on the subject. Of course, the article doesn’t even mention the security breach publicized over the weekend that basically lets you read anyone else’s hotmail accounts. Won’t it be fun when you’ll also be able to play around with anyone else’s bank accounts and medical records?
