Indeed. There's overlap, of course, since much of the point of security
is to prevent damage to the system's ability to function. However,
security is a large area, and I was kinda hoping to stay out of that one

OS bugs are far less of a problem in Win2k than they have been in the
Conspiracy theorists mistakenly assume others think before acting.
