    This is good news, go go Romania :) It's a fast groing market there. I hope Microsoft Russia and Kaspersky are gonna make a deal too for the Russian market...

    (nah, we buy Windows for $1 around the corner, don't think M$ is seeing any potential in our market :p)

    LOL, Blackcat I what was it $100HK for 5 CD's. If you believe in pirated software, which is bad :)

    But on topic, I believe this is a good step in getting more of a variety in OEM PC's. Now if they could only do that here in the states.

    Truly, the step is very positive. If more security products are supplied as OEM products, people can be made more aware of their PC's vulnerabilities and would take proactive steps to secure their systems.
    I have seen forums where people ask "Do I need an Anti-Virus?"

    Steps like these are commendable.
     
  8. the so called "deal":

    M$ bundles with Bidefender desktop product ONLY for retail market, ONLY until 30 of April and ONLY for Romania. which means almost nothing probably for the "protecting the home romanian user" point of view. and certainly nothing for most of the users of those forums.
    unfortunatelly, it's only marketing play and not much in the basket for the regular romanian cyberDracula.
