Feb 28th 2010 5:42PM I won't argue that Linux is not a superior design. That's pretty much a given. My point was that no matter which OS you choose to use, the weakest link in any security setup is almost always the user and their individual habits.
I am making the case that a vigilant and well-informed Windows user would be far more difficult to attack than a lazy Mac or Linux user that assumes they're safe because they use something other than Windows.
Being proactive with security makes things MUCH more difficult and time-consuming (i.e. not worth the time and effort) to the average WoW account hacker. They'll choose to strip down the hundreds of easily compromised machines that are out there over spending an inordinate amount of time targeting a tougher machine any day.

Nov 24th 2009 2:12PM No reason to downvote Aion comments, that game has some pretty nice visuals... but not every one WANTS the smooth plastic-looking characters that most MMO's these days have. Aion got it better than some of them did (EQ2 and Vanguard, for example), but they still look like mannequins to me.
One of the things I actually like about WoW is that it looks like a fantasy game no matter where you go in the world... and it looks that way all the time. I like that every race is easily distinguished from all the others at little more than a glance.
I do agree, however, that increasing the texture resolution a bit for the older models, and giving us some more faces, hairstyles, earrings, tattoos, bones in our noses, etc. would be a good thing.
Now, where's our player/guild housing? :P
