Gates: Must be from Texas b/c that's a lot of bull!

Gates Says: No AV, No Problem

So then why buy Microsoft OneCare?
"During the last year, if you had up-to-date Windows, you would have been safe if you didn't have" antivirus software, Bill Gates tells attendees at a Wall Street Journal conference (WSJ via Techdirt). The comment was slammed by an employee of Zone Labs, who noted the company's plan to charge for their OneCare security service was "like something out of The Godfather". As Mike Mesnick at Techdirt points out, if no AV is needed, why buy Microsoft's upcoming OneCare?
