Re: Does Microsoft compare
On my Windows box I'm always having to remove malicious adware bundled with other legitimate downloads & I've noticed strange things with my keyboard - I see that you are experiencing the same - where all of a sudden, I never type in any vowels.  I am sure that you know how to spell/type in the word compare.  Yet, I bet that you have had to retype vowels in much of your typing.  No one has mentioned that yet.  On my old Linux boxes, I have way less trouble but I only use them in a more limited way.

Re: Does Microsoft compare
You are correct, Marilyn. Microsoft's SIR reports are all based on Windows threats and infections, and that's always Microsoft's focus in those reports.

This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
