Microsoft Gets Into the Anti-Virus Game…Again

You’ll have to excuse Microsoft if they have a habit of doing things over again, at least they’re showing they can learn from their mistakes this time around.

PC World informs us that the company is planning on offering a free anti-virus product, currently code-named “Morro”, in place of its, to be discontinued, Windows Live OneCare retail product.

Why the flip in sentiments? Despite OneCare getting the snub from computer owners there are quite a few free alternatives in the anti-virus market which would make any attempt at charging for a very basic security tool run afoul of computer user sensibilities.

That and they’re feeling generous, at least I like to think so.
