OneCare

So I will admit that I’m quite impressed with Windows Vista. However there is one fatal flaw that annoys me… availability of software to provide firewall or antivirus services.

OneCare, definitely for the non-techie. You install it and then you just “trust” it to do its job. Not quite sure how I feel about that, though Microsoft is set to release ForeFront Client Security which should provide for a more configurable interface.

So what to do? Wait for Zonelabs to come out with their firewall? Perhaps considering it is more or less a what you tell it to do is what it does kind of firewall.

Nevertheless, definitely disappointed with OneCare, maybe in the future they’ll add the ability to open up firewall ports as you’d like rather than just using what Microsoft thinks you should use.
