LOL... In my own defense I never said they did it deliberately.

Looking back at my college days, I suppose the illusional "Perfect OS" will able to sense that it's about to crash and take actions to NOT crash... OR warn the user that it's about to crash and is trying it's best not to crash...

Come on guys, wake up. There's nothing cslled as a perfect OS. Its just one's perspective. I can do what ever I want on windows, macs and linux OS. Its just a matter of preference. For me, Windows FTW. Reason: its endlessly configurable.

And that is precisely why people who don't have a clue how to set up, and secure their machine, think you can always be hacked, no matter what steps you take to prevent it. As you've pointed out, that's simply NOT true. At least not in the real world. The television shows like CSI [or whatever] that show people hacking into computers is laughable. It's pure fantasy, and nothing more.

Exactly!

And as for the perfect OS, I'm perfectly happy with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I have no complaints whatsoever for what I use it for. A home OS.

Been reading the thread... CommonTater & zzz2496 really educated on the benefits of firewalls.

But there's one thing the "Perfect Operating System" will never be able to get past: the human being sitting behind the keyboard!

When there are tons of "Click me to see if you've won;" "See my private pics at *******.xxx.xxx;" and the grand-daddy, "I am a Nigerian diplomat..."

Until then, we got what we got...

Ahhh... the BKC-100 error shows up,yet again....

Back when I was working service management, whenever we were ready to cut a new tech loose in the field we gave him the same advice... When it becomes painfully obvious you have a user error, spend half an hour doing something that looks really impressive, inform the operator diplomatically how to avoid the problem in future making it sound like a machine error, then add $100 to their tab and get out of there. It wasn't long before I started receiving service slips with "BKC-100 ERROR" in the "solution" section...

That is an awesome way to do it actually. Makes sense, and it is funny to the techs.

And, I concede defeat on the firewall.
I admit that I did not know nearly enough to be arguing what I had, and I apologize for that.
Commontater and zzz2646, thanks for the explanations.
