Washington Post Says Small Businesses Should Dump Windows

OK, so that's kind of a "gotcha" headline, but now that we've (hopefully) got you, The Washington Post really did publish an item this week saying that small-business owners should switch from Windows to Linux if they want to bank securely online. The author of the Post's blog entry, Brian Krebs, even gives a whole, long tutorial on how to use Linux on a Windows machine.
