A bug in a beta release, who'd have thunk it? (1)

I'm not MS fanboi, but FFS at least wait until the final OS image is released until the sniping starts.

What everyone else said, plus if you RTFA you'll see that the vulnerability applies to Vista as well.

ooh, you're right! So I'm being very unfair to Windows 7 - the remote BSoD is actually an exciting new Vista feature.

This bug has been added to the Vista Failure Log [slashdot.org]. I thought that OS was over, but it keeps giving. I have also added this flaw to the Windows 7 Failure Log [slashdot.org], which is as much a continuation of the Vista Failure Log as Windows 7 is a continuation of Vista.

I double plus good your plus and raise you a failed company [slashdot.org], like everyone else says.
