Usual rant: An 18 year old kid, supposedly faces up to five years in jail, but will probably get off with a hand-slap, and it's not Microsoft's fault. Nor are the folks who don't bother to install patches or run virus software to be blamed. Well, we can blame, but nobody is going to be coughing up any cash and nobody is going to face any real punishment.
