Microsoft silently fixes security holes in Windows 10 – dumps Win 7, 8 out in the cold


Re: Gnome for Windows

Thanks to wonderful inventions like WebGL, there is now quite a bit of kernel/driver exposure to web sites. You don't have to search far to find examples of web sites causing bugchecks/kernel panics.

This applies regardless of browser and OS, by the way, as long as certain "features" are supported.

(It also might be worth mentioning that all font rendering takes place in userland in Windows 10. So yes, that flaw has been resolved. If I'm not totally mistaken they are working on moving the rest of Win32k as well.)
