I agree. It makes "client usage" much easier and servers should anyway
get protection via firewalls and special security changes.
And Microsoft issued fixes for the exploited holes a long time ago.
You'd be amazed at how many of my customers don't realize the need for a
firewall. Some of them became my customers because they did an
"everything" install and put the box right on the net. I agree, that's
just an absurd thing to do. The fact remains, they do do it.
