Great to see things keep moving around our Live services. Finally – yes I was getting tired of waiting – OneCare is available in Belgium. I found it personally hard to accept that because of my system language, I couldn’t get started with OneCare. My dear colleagues in Redmond, there are people living elsewhere too and we also need to deal with security.
But no more nagging, I installed it yesterday on my mother’s PC and that went very smoothly. I just need to find out where I can buy a prepaid card to register it. Anyone? At the moment, my mother still has the orange 1 in the system tray because I didn’t install IE7 yet. I will do that over the weekend – it’s not just installing IE7, it’s also explaining IE7 🙂 – and then she’ll have a comforting green 1. The cool thing is that now I don’t need to worry any more about which security products I need to install to cover all types of threats: malware, spyware, virusses, worms… I don’t need to worry whether I need, Defender, Antispyware… Just one complete package.
I also saw that Soapbox opened up. Cool. It’s nice when things just work 😉
