Windows XP should be safe
At a security conference in San Francisco, software giant Microsoft presented a new security strategy designed to make the upcoming Windows XP operating system completely secure. In addition to the proven NT kernel on which Windows XP is known to be based, e-mails with the latest bug fixes should also ensure that the newest member of the Windows family is absolutely secure against external attacks.
In addition, Microsoft intends to provide applications for Windows that come from third-party providers with a seal of quality or security in the future. However, this solution is not very elegant either, as you will probably have to fight your way through numerous security warnings when installing an application, as is already the case in Windows XP Beta 2 when installing uncertified drivers.
