Despite Security, Microsoft pitches 'no separate app server' approach

NZheretic writes "Coming so soon after Brian Valentine's grim admission concerning the security of Microsoft's products, Bob O'Brien, Microsoft group product manager for the Windows.Net Server division is still preaching the old "Having an application server built into the operating system makes it fast, makes it efficient, and makes it very simple for the customer to maintain and that all translates to cost [savings]," line.
This despite that it was one of the major security issues with Microsoft's IIS and the rest of the Unix/BSD/Linux world are increasingly isolating such exposed services and restricting their access to the operating system."
