My black friend (or Black-American if you had to distinghuish his country of citizenship) would probably put african-american in quotes, if he was the kind of guy to do that kind of thing.

Microsoft begins Security Essentials downloads


That symantec quote is brilliant

That is some super head burying there.

"Consumers need firewall protection, Web protection, antispam and identity safeguards - these are among the essentials when it comes to security, and you can only get them through a full Internet security suite provided by security experts. "

And by boots I do mean firefox is open and I am browsing in 13 seconds.
