* Windows anti-spyware to be free

News.com(.com) has word that Windows' anti-spyware package will be free after all; early reports had hinted that MS might try to attach a fee to the software.

The pledge, made by Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates during his keynote speech kicking off the RSA Conference 2005 here, comes after the company had been testing its AntiSpyware application--technology it acquired with its purchase of security software maker Giant Software.

"Just as spyware is something that we have to nip down today, we have decided that all licensed Windows users should have that protection at no charge," Gates said.
Say what you will about MS, it's nice to see them doing right by their customers. Though I doubt their software will wholly supplant offerings like Spybot, it's good that less tech-savvy users will start to see some protection.
