FT: Interview with Bill Gates

Financial Times: How much resource does Microsoft put into security?

Bill Gates: Security is our top priority. I can't see that changing any time soon.

FT: More important than hitting the Vista deadline? [Windows Vista, the next version of Windows, is due to be launched late this year.]

BG:Oh, absolutely. Believe me, Vista would have been out nine months ago if we hadn't had to do all the security design reviews and put the security features in. XP SP2 [the security update to the previous version of Windows] was a huge effort, when we took the people off Vista. Transcript of interview with Bill Gates - Financial Times - MSNBC.com
