Microsoft Exec: Vista More Secure Than Microsoft Rivals

Microsoft employee Jeff Jones ran an analysis of Vista's first three months compared to the Mac and Linux, and found Vista has far fewer security flaws.

While a report from Microsoft about Microsoft security has the scent of bias, I have no evidence to contradict Mr. Jones. There hasn't been a large quantity of Vista vulnerabilities, and so far no show-stoppers.

But critics smarter than me countered Jones, pointing out that his report only tracks those holes made public. Making them more suspicious is the fact that XP came in as the second-most secure operating system.
