Re: "Personal" computer no more

@David 123

I've ranted on this aspect before (Zog passim) but you can't say it often enough IMHO as most people don't seem to care.

What concerns me more is that this trend is just that, a trend, and I'm wondering how long it will be before using an "insecure" OS is a criminal offence. Don't laugh. With cyber attacks a daily event and millions of (unwitting) users probably being used as vectors, will running XP (say) make you a "terrorist accomplice"? Will Linux be on the "approved list"?
