Microsoft AntiSpyware has been renamed Windows Defender.

I'm wondering whether the next version will be called "Windows Stargate". And, I'm wondering what happens when I press the Hyperspace key...

This just begs for somebody to photoshop a Defender screenshot. wink

Defender was a word used way before Williams in 1980

(defender: n. a fighter who holds out against attack)

That said, English allows you to interpret the title as one who defends against Windows. As for Photoshop, I would say that somethingawful already has that somewhere.

A quick search shows nothing yet. Although I swear I've seen it before.

Hyperspace = INIT C: wink

I've also thought that the Motorola logo looked suspiciously close the the Williams logo (just upside down)
