Microsoft Exec: Vista More Secure Than Microsoft Rivals
Microsoft employee Jeff Jones ran an analysis
of Vista's first three months
compared to the Mac and Linux, and found Vista
has far fewer security flaws.
While a report from Microsoft about Microsoft security has the scent of bias,
I have no evidence to contradict Mr. Jones. There hasn't been a large quantity
of Vista vulnerabilities, and so far no show-stoppers.
But critics smarter than me countered Jones, pointing out that his report only
tracks those holes made public. Making them more suspicious is the fact that
XP came in as the second-most secure operating system.
