Time for another antitrust lawsuit, then.

It's foolish relying on ms for security, anyway -- do you rely on them for your music player, video player, web browser, text editor, etc, etc?

Even their OS and their flagship product are becoming less and less stable and reliable, as time moves on -- in fact, the only thing that's "improving" is the amount of "telemetry" they're managing to sneak past everyone (n.b. a huge amount of which is sent to ms by defender itself).

Do I trust the "*Icon Heroes*" to look after my security?

Like Hell I do.
