Whoa there. Cryptography is **not** synonymous with security. Cryptography is a
tool security folks use to INCREASE the relative secureness of data, systems, and
communications. By cryptography does not equal security.

Never said that.

Windows can be secured. Very easily.

No it can't. You may _believe_ that it is secure, but that is only because it is opaque to you - you simply confuse the lack of knowledge of any problems with the absence of problems.

A simple question: If Windows is so easy to secure and if security is the highest priority at Microsoft (as Bill Gates said it is), why then doesn't Microsoft do this easy thing?
