I wonder how much of this is true, and how much is scare-mongering to
move people off Windows 7?

Microsoft have already started to make Windows 7 less user friendly by
preserving the "Homegroup" option but removing the "Sharing" capability
that allows it to file share with XP (I had to uninstall that update to
get the facility back), so I wonder what other sneaky tricks will be
included in the update that is supposed to fix this bug?

The flaw was found largely by Google because Chrome is the entry point.

That's something that always worries me, but worth looking into just in
