Who's Inflating Vista Security Expectations?

Unsatisfied with Microsoft's boring, conservative claims, critics invent new and unreasonable ones that they can blame the company for not meeting.

As I see it, the biggest question in the security business this year is how well Windows Vista will hold up against what will be the most concerted attack in the industry's relatively short history.

The standards for a fair analysis of this question are more complicated than many would have you believe: Vista doesn't have to be perfect in order to hold up well. As even Microsoft will tell you, if you actually listen to what the company says, nothing's perfect, and a big part of hardening a product against attack is to be prepared for when a failure occurs.
