ZDNET says MS has "seen the error of its ways:" "One of the first manifestations that will make it into customers' hands
will be a feature in the Windows XP client and Whistler server called
Software Restriction Policies. This "managed code" feature will enable
administrators to set policies and choose which kinds of code are
permitted to run and where and how programs can run on a user's
machine. For instance, all Visual Basic script files could be rendered
useless, except for those that contain a digital signature embedded in
the script code."
