OK you don't see my point ( sorry for my bad American/English, it is not one of my main languages).
- you point on windows 95, can I remind you that is was made available in 1995, 16 years ago, I can understand that microsoft ( which is not building his image on security ) stop the security updates.
- After 95 there was NT, 98, 98SE, NT4, millenium, 2000, XP, Vista and 7. If you take only XP which was made available in 2002 ( 9 years ago ). Even if it is not officially supported by Microsoft , I get the security updates on our computers every first tuesday. NOT bad for an unsupported product from a company that is not building on security...
- We bought the last batch of blackberries 81xx and 83xx in 2010 ( yes well known operators sell them ), and now one year later no more security support !
really BAD for a company
BUT deadly shocking from a company building his image on security
Can I remind you that there are several millions of blackberry 81xx and 83xx still used by RIM customers .
I can understand that they can't get OS5 because of memory constraints, BUT I can't understand the NO security support from RIM.
So YES the security image of RIM is not anymore, sorry for that, they are now just one of those...
