The youngest Windows Vista tester, in Laurelhurst

That would be Jim Allchin’s 7-year-old son, who is running a Vista PC.

Allchin mentioned this during today’s announcement that Vista is done, to emphasize the software’s security.

He said his son’s safe on the computer even though there’s no antivirus system on the machine, which is “locked down with parental controls.”

“I feel totally confident about that. That is quite a statement,” Allchin said. “I couldn’t say that with Windows XP SP2.”

A few minutes later, Allchin backtracked a bit.”I’m not trying to encourage people not to run antivirus software,” he said. “I was just making the point that in his extreme, locked-down situation he didn’t — he’s not running e-mail.”
