Re: How much does it cost an attacker these days to launch a large-scale attack?

Except, of course, that if the brainless dolt persists in allowing root/admin privilege to all and sundry when asked every OS is vulnerable. Anyone who knows slightly more than fuck-all about computers knows this, which puts you in with the dolts.

The real question here is how do we produce an OS that completely denies all admin level privilege to the end-user, also lets them do what they want, where installation / upgrade / additional software is all controlled by professionals and its health is continually monitored by same? Also how do we do this in such a way as to avoid the flaming 'tards of the internet immediately killing it with rants about corporate/government/alien sponges control?
