Vista Vexes Vendors

Microsoft offered an olive branch to its newfound security competitors by promising more information about APIs and such, making it easier to disable Vista's security dashboard to let McAfee or Symantec act as the anti-virus default. But are these competitors grateful? Nah. They're still spittin' mad! (And I'm still confused as to why security is still a Vista add-on. I say either build it in for free, or leave it to the third parties.) These vendors also claim they still can't get good info about the 64-bit version of Vista -- but if it's as buggy as 64-bit XP, then I wouldn't worry.
