The article author says "Microsoft is claiming that half of all MS Windows crashes are the fault of third party code, not their own." The headline on Slashdot blares "Microsoft Code at Fault for Half of all Windows Crashes." I'm not sure which is better. It reminds me of the Aamco commercial that said "Half the cars brought in don't need a new transmission," which says to me that if I take my car in, it's 50/50 that I'll need a new tranny.
