The updated article is full of useful advice such as recommending that you don’t use Microsoft Windows (“Buy a Macintosh or use Linux”), Microsoft Office (“Look into one of the free office suites as an alternative”) or Internet Explorer (“Don’t use Microsoft Internet Explorer, period”).
The article has been criticised, though, mostly for being too technical. This is a fair criticism imho, because Bruce himself in the article says it is “to give home users concrete actions they could take to improve security”.
The advice Bruce gives is generally sound, for people who know what they are doing, that is. Most home users don’t fall into this category, unfortunately. There is no easy way to help home users until there are popular, secure and easy to use operating systems and applications readily available. That day hasn’t arrived yet.
