As long as security is low on every body's list, very few people/companies will switch. For example, even with all the viruses going thru outlook, you do not see anyone switching to Eudora, Pegasus, Opera M2, Thunderbird or others... Even with all the damage, data loss, and cost due to the security bugs, you do not see any legislator putting a bill to make software companies accountable. Ford and Bridgestone were taken to court for the few faulty tires, and yet the millions of dollars lost due to outlook and windows go unnoticed; money that could have been used in saving lives, vaccination, etc... currently the drive is to try to get the virus writer which is stupid!

If laws are made addressing the accountability of software companies, then we will see some changes. I do not expect a program to be bug proof, buy the way outlook works is ridiculous.

This may be a bit off topic, but these are my 2 cents!
