Free security from Microsoft
Microsoft this week announced that it will retire its Windows Live OneCare product and replace it with a free solution codenamed "Morro".
This is an interesting move on the part of Microsoft especially when you consider the fact that OneCare has been on the market for a less than three years and if it was good then this could be the time it could be getting more customers for the product.
This could also be a sign that Microsoft has failed to remove the stranglehold on the security market by players like McAfee and Symantec and now there are also very good free alternatives like AVG.
This new product is to be made available in the second half of 2009 and is targeted at 'small and not powerful computers' suggesting that maybe its not for every home user but possibly for netbook users.
I use the free AVG anti-virus program and I find it to be very good for me at the moment.
