Again, I agree with your statement overall. The quoted text below is where we differ. I don't believe that what they will say is fixed will be true either way. Nor will it stop further exploits from being discovered weeks, months, years and decades from now. There is not a lot of choice going forward in 2019 as to whether or not to use an insecure platform like a computer (any computer). I will keep buying based on performance (Intel still rules there, even after waiting for Ryzen to catch up for a couple of years) and the security will be handled internally as usual (in my terms and with my rules). Awareness happened around the '70s. The only thing that is changed today and for a few years now is that a larger %age of the general public is aware (at least on some level) of the new(er) exploits too.
