Microsoft has pledged to concentrate on security improvements in their software and plan to improve the current update system to make sure all patches are uninstallable and that they do not necessitate a mandatory reboot after installation.
The companys chief security officer at the security business and technology unit, David Aucsmith, is keen to remind people that security is a new priority with their operating system family, adding that Windows 95 had no security features at all.
He stresses that the company cannot make their software future-proof regarding security. He also says that what are now Windows updates will become Microsoft updates, patching not just the operating system but all MS software. Source
