You've heard of those packet sniffing hac kers out in the parking lots of famous department stores and stealing c r e d c a r d info by the millions  and those stores used the outdated and insecure WEP.

Now you can get WPA2 which is the most secure wireless.

Why didn't MS think of this sooner.

Ithink you got this late - WPA has been available on Windows XP since Service Pack 2, which was released about three years ago. Actually WPA support was released about the time the hardware supporting WPA came out, so there is no reason for alarm.

yes, with all due respct, you need an update,  you're thinking about WPA,  but now there is WPA2  an enhanced version.

WPA2 came out in late 2007.

Yep, published in April 2005. So it's not something that Microsoft has just released now. It's three years old.
