Re: Anymore proof needed that

I do not disagree with your comments about WINDOWS 'above' W7,BUT! on what basis do you claim the same for W7?

It's NOT only O.S software that is capable of hacking one's system, it's also 'hardware'.

It was just a few years ago that it was expected that chip controllers,CPU's RAM et'c would have data redirect built into them.

That is perhaps more worrying,not just for computers,but all hardware controlled digitally.

It also ties in with the USA & UK gov's anti-terrorist STASI-like policies of ISP injection policies or retention by the ISP's.

But why bother with the public debate on such policies when the hardware is already capable of delivering the goods?
