The Inquirer: Bill Gates says users to blame for security problems

MICROSOFT’S CHIEF SOFTWARE ARCHITECT Bill Gates is repeating the mantra that users are to blame for insecure PCs, in an interview with a Canadian newspaper.
This refrain is familiar to the INQUIRER: Gates said more or less the same thing when he addressed an Assembly of CEOs in Berlin a few weeks ago.(full story)

My spin: Users do have some role to play in many cases. If they don’t have an anti-virus product, don’t update their PC, particpiate in file sharing servers and etc – it’s no wonder they might get some security breaches on their PC. HOWEVER, software developers still must develop workable and more secure software.
