Microsoft's website on events and webcasts discusses upcoming security
seminars, but check the laptop used at
(those in the know will easily identify the machine, with the logo
removed via airbrushing).
Perhaps MS have decided to take to heart the report from mi2g's
'Intelligence Unit' [http://www.mi2g.net/cgi/mi2g/press/190204_2.php]
that the world's safest and most secure online server operating system
is proving to be the Open Source family of BSD (Berkley Software
Distribution) and the Mac OS X based on Darwin. The same report also
claims that Linux systems fared less well (being the most-breached
online server OS), possibly due to operator error more than system
error, from the analysis.
