Vista to eliminate AntiSpyware Programs?



First of all I am going to say when pigs fly, CNET is reporting that a new report out by the Yankee Group says that they expect Vista to significantly shrink the antispyware and firewall market. I about fell out of my chair. Do they realize how simply amazing those statements are. I for one highly doubt that Microsoft can pull it off.

Did I not read that most of the firewall functions are not even going to be enabled? I for one know how big of a target Microsoft is and the monetary gains by all of these data thieves is a powerful motivator to breach Vista, so that they can keep their cash cow rolling in. [CNET]
