Vista Way Secure, Microsoft Says
A few months after Vista shipped, Microsoft released
a report showing
that its new OS was more secure than virtually anything
else on the desktop, such as XP, Mac and Linux.
Redmond Report readers bought the XP part, but fell all over themselves laughing
about the Mac and Linux findings.
Three months later comes the six-month
report, and once again Vista comes through with flying colors.
My take is that the sheer number of flaws is important, but not the final word
in security. It is possible that Mac and Linux have more flaws, but what really
matters is what hackers care to attack -- and they just love attacking Windows!
