    Is Windows itself a Virus?

    No, Windows is not a virus. Here’s what viruses do:

    • They replicate quickly – okay, Windows does that.

    • Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so – okay, Windows does that.

    • Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk – okay, Windows does that too.

    • Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems. Sigh… Windows does that, too.

    • Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware. Yup, that’s with Windows, too.

    Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are fundamental differences:Viruses are well supported by their authors, are running on most systems, their program code is fast, compact and efficient and they tend to become more sophisticated as they mature.

    So Windows is not a virus.
    It’s a bug.

  2. Happy New Year to you too, MDN! Thanks for providing this forum for us Mac fanatics, for keeping track of the tech and geek news that we all love, for your usually insightful and always funny takes, and for putting up with the occasional brickbats from your more unruly patrons.

    MW “expected”, as in “People are expected to be civil, but it doesn’t always work out that way. Maybe we’ll all be a little more civil to each other this year?”

  3. That was just brilliant Mike Buonarroti (no relation to Michela I presume…?)

    I think the ‘Windows is a Bug’ message HAS to become a viral email… I’m kicking it off right now by sending it to a thousand names. It will carry a link to OSX on Apple.com to finish it off!

    Right-on fella’s; its the YEAR OF SHINY BRIGHT APPLES!
