Low-End Laptops with High-End Security

Windows XP still makes Swiss cheese look like the Great Wall of China, and Vista's security is very much untested. So it seems that the $100 Linux laptop (I think there have been more articles written about this puppy than units shipped) could upstage Microsoft desktop OSes by offering a deeper level of security than anything Redmond offers -- say, along the lines of a Mac.

This is the beauty of building a system from the ground up. And that means Microsoft should be able to do the same thing with Vista. Only time (as in months) will tell. Are you a beta tester? Have your tests revealed anything about Vista security? Clue us in by commenting below or e-mailing me at dbarney@redmondmag.com
