I think the point they are making is that if you can compromise the OS, you can probably circumvent the decryption. Since XP is no longer supported, as new exploits are discovered, the OS won't be patched, and over time, the security of the system will be compromised.
....washes up on the beach of an island and is immediately surrounded by a group of native warriors.
"I'm done for", the man cries in despair.
"No you are not," comes a booming voice from the heavens.
"Listen carefully, and do exactly as I say. Grab the spear from the one who is beside you and
shove it through the heart of the chief."
The man does so, and the remainder of the band stare in disbelief.
"Now, what?" the man asks the heavens.
Just goes to show how little you really knows your own family when it comes down to it...

An Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, "What is this Father?"
The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is"
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat, old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blonde stepped out.
The father said quietly to his son....."Go get your mother."
ok, Yesterday someone asked about statistics packages and programming languages.
In my experience that has been heavily and I mean heavily tied to reporting. Or pushed to create reports.
In my own opinion about things and how things work.
Excel Probably #1 used, Easiest for the end user to get a handle on, Works 80% of the time for what needs to be delivered.
SSRS - My personal favorite, You can do pretty much anything and get a pretty report to hand to people that you can reproduce time and time again with little effort by the programmer, Has not been updated in forever. In serious need of some TLC from MS.
SAS - more statistical than anything, I have watched many companies try to force this to be a reporting tool to produce pretty reports rather than using it as a data number cruncher that the program is designed to be used for. It does work though and once you get the hang of using it, getting information is pretty easy you just proc it.
SPSS - See SAS. LOL
Information Builders(WebFocus) - THE WORST and most horrible package I have ever had to deal with, bad documentation, expensive as all get out, Just the worst reporting package that I have ever had to deal with, I have been very involved with watching two organizations just implode from this package producing horrible data results in a bad time frame. Run away if you ever encounter this package.
So I know there are more packages out there. What other ones should we check out that might be awesomer than SSRS and Excel.

I;m sitting with a dilemma. I want to write a Hotel Management System but now do I go with asp.net or wpf? Both are great technologies but each has its own pros and cons? Any advice with which one to go with?
That will rather depend on the System. I personally wouldn't use WPF but that is just my own irrational bias. Where is your user base - if they are spread around then a web-based solution may be best ... as long as the Hotels are in locations where there is good internet access. Are they going to be sharing data with another hotel in the group - if not then a desktop solution might be more appropriate.
Work out your "business requirements" first then choose the tool that is most appropriate to satisfy them, not the tool that someones says is "best"
