How's this for a switch. Microsoft releases something open-source that is actually beneficial to programmers.

Quote:
Microsoft on Friday released an open-source program designed to streamline the labor-intensive process of identifying security vulnerabilities in software while it's still under development. As its name suggests, !exploitable Crash Analyzer (pronounced 'bang exploitable crash analyzer') combs through bugs that cause a program to seize up, and assesses the likelihood of them being exploited by attackers. Dan Kaminsky, a well-known security expert who also provides consulting services to Microsoft, hailed the release a 'game changer' because it provides a reliable way for developers to sort through thousands of bugs to identify the several dozen that pose the greatest risk

I downloaded it but I haven't done anything with it yet. I imagine it has to be burned to a bootable CD. Is that correct?

I hadn't gotten that far. I do relatively little programming anymore outside of Flash.
