The REAL News From Microsoft

Once again, the mainstream media has things all wrong. From reading the news, one would get the impression that the Big News out of Seattle is two items:
* Microsoft has opened a store
* Windows 7 is now officially released

While those two items are interesting, I admit, they aren’t the really important ones. The mainstream media always misses the really important things it seems to me.

The really important news from Microsoft is:
Microsoft has released a Top-Tier anti-malware program and made it available to everyone – FREE. Lifetime.Win7RC.jpg

It is called Security Essentials, and it is a free alternative to One Care.

Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a free download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and always kept up to date so you can be assured your PC is protected by the latest technology. It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.

Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want—without interruptions or long computer wait times.

Yes. It will run just dandy on your brand new Windows 7.

This release from Microsoft has Industry experts saying that the “antivirus game has changed.” And nobody’s laughing.
For once, the winners are us — the average folk.

When your anti-malware license expires, I can recommend that you consider this alternative.

Microsoft, you get a big tip of my Geek hat!

Today’s free download: Microsoft Security Essentials
Proven antivirus protection for free.

[a brief aside: I understand that a few of you have been downloading Win7. I welcome folks (who have) to leave a comment describing their first impressions.]
