I already knew this, but it's nice to see confirmation. As much as I support FOSS, Linux has a pretty dismal track record in security, and Apple has somehow managed to render BSD insecure.

"Windows Server 2008 was the fourth most vulnerable OS in 2014 with 38 vulnerabilities, but it isn't a version aimed at consumers" No shit? Because ALL the other server OS are aimed at consumers?? :) Hey Little Joe, how cool is playing Candycrush on RHLE? Not as cool as on AIX, bro!

And since when a consumer vulnerability is more important than a n enterprise vulnerability (which is what that paragraph implicitly suggests)?

The breakdown does not make any sense... comparing one kernel with a list of operating systems...

NVD... US Govt... those who banned strong encryption in the 90s so now we have FREAK and so NSA & Co. could become THE most dangerous global security vulnerability since the dawn of time? C'mon! ;)

I dropped by the Panoz factory near Road Atlanta and happened to meet Tom Milner, the man who brought the BMW M3 to American sportscar racing.

+Mike Bye, he's apparently working with them after shutting down PTG. He has an office on the other side (behind the camera).

Attempting to resolve the conflicts in my love for both carbon-spewing machines and nature
Introduction
I've worked in IT since 1998, gaining experience in every aspect of technology along the way. From building computers and fielding customer support calls, I went on to deploy VPNs and manage CRM systems, set up and manage an ISP and two data centers, re-architect several large websites, and write software for DOJ, CBP, US Army, Cooke Communications, and many others. I'm now working as a full-time .NET developer for IOTA Solutions, but also playing a major role in driving and implementing new technology for the company.

 In my spare time, I try to do a lot of things. I debug and play with open-source software on both Windows and  Linux. I race whenever I can (usually karts, but sometimes real cars). I edit Wikipedia articles, research random subjects, read countless books, and proofread for Project Gutenberg. See below for some of the things I'd like to discuss with you.

Science/politics/world events: I'll discuss them, but it's pointless to try to peg me as liberal or conservative. My views and opinions are my own, and are usually fairly well-informed.

Major tech geek: I love Linux (especially Fedora), GNOME, and FOSS in general. I've had an Android phone since the original T-Mobile G1. This doesn't mean I am biased against Windows; I think the .NET CLR is awesome, and C# is my favorite language ever.

Bird lover: I take photos of birds, have pet birds both domestic and wild, and contribute to Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Aviary in Pittsburgh, PA. 

Racing fan: F1, USCR/Tudor, V8 Supercars, DTM, BTCC, WRC, Indy... Also a BMW nut and amateur mechanic with enough experience to know when I need a pro.

Musician: I play classical guitar and rock out on the electric now and then.
