Microsoft Morro Gets A Retail Name

 


Microsoft has decided that it is time for us to be enlightened as to what Morro's name will be later this year when it is released and that is "Security Essentials". While verison 1.0 isn't expected till much later in the year, it is said that Security Essentials will be in public preview form come September. When released it will be available to consumers for free.
