3. Your comment is a "cute" criticism of Microsoft's OS security
record. But,while it is true that the OS has been breached on numerous occasions, the problem if securing a one operation process, i.e.counting one vote, is vastly simpler than securing an entire OS. I believe that Microsoft or any other good software house could develop this satisfactorily.

And in comparison to the almost non-existence of any security on the voting machines, I think the ideas by microsoft on this subject are a good step in the right direction.
