Bill Gates advocates safety

Up until now, Microsoft's primary goal in software development was often justified with the integration of ever more extensive functions and features. But now company founder Bill Gates personally seems to want to take a turn in corporate policy.

In an email to Microsoft- Bill Gates is said to have spoken out in favor of paying attention to the security of the programmed products in the first place as part of the new 'Trustworthy Computing' campaign. The writing should be available to the news agency AP. Gates further explains that from now on it is better to do without additional functions if security can be further consolidated in the time this frees up. The Group's motivation can be justified relatively clearly. In the past, and especially after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Microsoft had been criticized again and again for the fact that the programs were not secure enough and therefore not suitable for use in public and confidential institutions. The new strategy is certainly intended to regain the dwindling trust of the users that the UPNP bug had reached its lowest point for the time being.
