"The New York Times seems hard-wired to rarely identify any
Windows malware as Windows malware, but only "computer malware."
They seem to share this illness with other people too, such as
researchers and professors. Can it be that all these educated
people who make their livings knowing things and uncovering new
knowledge really don't know that there are other computer operating
systems besides Microsoft Windows?
"Their latest failure at making this distinction is China Orders
Patches to Planned Web Filter, and they also missed the real story:
since this censoring software is required to be installed on all
computers sold in China, does that mean that Mac, Linux, and Unix
computers are banned? Because it's a Windows program."
