    I cannot confirm from the below, if it has antimalware capabilities - all it
    seems to talk about is AV and antispyware.

    http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

    Is there anywhere that it gives a detailed description of its security
    protection capabilities?

    i think microsoft should make its antivirus free, since it will protect
    their own Operating Systems, not others. not linux, not mac, not bsd, it
    will boost their own OS market if done correctly, isn't it?

    I think they should sell us the MSSE and give us the operating system free.

  10. Antivirus protects *everyone* regardless of OS. Malware is *everybody's*
    problem and everybody benefits if it is made more difficult to
    implement. If malware infiltrates your trusted network, don't assume
    that only your Windows boxes will be affected. Malware can abuse
    functionality once within a trusted network - and spew malware to other
    computers by using what you consider to be a non-compromised machine's
    clock-cycles.

    I do think AV on a MS server OS should still be able to detect Linux
    viruses for instance. It shouldn't matter what OS the server is
    running - all of the clients (various OSes) should be protected from
    being served malware. A Linux mailserver might want to filter out
    Windows E-mail vector worms even though they wouldn't affect Linux
    directly.

    ....of course, this is 'old school' - back when prevention was the focus
    rather than clean-up. Any clean-up would have to be targeted to the
    affected OS's software.
