says Windows 7 is the most secure version
of the Windows operating system ever developed. Big deal, right? I am pretty sure that Microsoft has made that claim for every new version of Microsoft Windows in the past 15 years, and that it is a valid claim.
What else would you expect? Is Microsoft going to come out with a new operating system and make it less secure than its predecessor? I think not. Still, while the marketing around Windows 7
security may be part hyperbole, there are actually a number of significant security improvements
to be aware of, especially for Windows XP users making (or considering) the transition
to Windows 7
. Many of these security updates existed in Windows Vista
as well, so Vista users should already be familiar with them.
