A year ago yesterday, I linked to Dave Wilson’s LA Times article entitled “Windows, Windows, everywhere”, which talked about how the homogeneity caused by a worldwide subscription licensing scheme would cause viruses to have a more devastating effect since everyone would have the same vulnerabilities.

I went back to look at it today, and it’s not there. The link doesn’t work any more and there’s no helpful message to tell me where I might find it. It may be in the archives and available for a fee, but when I found the archives I still couldn’t find the article. This makes me much less likely to link to the LA Times in future. Is it really worth it for them?
