Who said anything about M$?  I don't use their crappy products so I 
don't have to deal with their security issues.

If PHP 4.2 is unsafe then why is it listed at the top of the page for 
download?  There is not a shread of text saying do not use in production, 
no unsafe warnings whatsoever.  How am I supposed to magically find the 
'do not use' warnings?

It's not about that..  It's about the hell I've already been through with 
the new register_globals setting.  Then two huge ass security holes 
following in the next couple of months after that.

If it doesn't bother you the hassles 'the php group' is putting me, you, 
and alot of others through then I guess that's just you.  I can't 
help but get pissed about it.  I did not have the time to do these 
upgrades, but now I have to make time.
