Well I don't agree with this analogy. This more like an M1A2 Abrams Battle Tank not being able to handle small arms fire. Windows is designed to be used on the Internet, it should be able to handle "Script Kiddies" like the Abrams can handle small arms fire.
Windows was designed for the average user, to become a useful cog in the technology industry.
Then why can Apple do it? Its designed for the average user and generally described as more user friendly than Windows.
Do you think Windows anticipated connecting digital video recorders, morphing the pictures, adding sound plus internet security when it was written back in the 80's
Apple did. Apple had TCP/IP networking technology built into Mac OS before there was a World Wide Web. Apple even had a website before Microsoft.
If ONLY the leadership at Apple were 10% as competent.
They aren't the ones standing up in front of crowds saying, "Our products have so many holes that swiss cheese is jealous!".
Because Apple is ran by marketing fools. Their product is easier to use, uses less parts, is more stable, and generally is the envy of the industry. But, when a consumer has a choice of buying the lowest Mac with little/no software; or a top notch PC with scads of software; the user typically choses the PC.
I think that's the wrong choice of words. Windows was RETROFITTED to be used on the Internet. Big diff.
