remember that Linux was not written to be used for and by the everyday Mom and Pop. Only serious people (yourself) use Linux, No gaming, no GUI and the click here, there crap that makes Windows easy for even the blind. Yes, the blind use it too.
Linux is similar to Unix and that my friend has been around from the old days on MA-Bell, Xerox etc and why should it not be far more secure? Shocks, every major college MIT use it and improved it and that should not compare as most people want us to believe.
Surely MS products are secure (My take) and I have not had viruses or any major incidents and yes, I administer major networks using Windows products.+Chris Topher
There are far less Windows Fan boys than there are MACs and Linux and I would not call Linux guys fan boys; they are above average geeks who are good at coding, scripts etc.
Certainly, as a products becomes more popular...people will go after it and if Linux did catch on as they wanted over a decade ago and Windows faded as Novel did, hackers would have a field day with Linux too.
