Vista Way Secure, Microsoft Says

A few months after Vista shipped, Microsoft released a report showing that its new OS was more secure than virtually anything else on the desktop, such as XP, Mac and Linux.

Redmond Report readers bought the XP part, but fell all over themselves laughing about the Mac and Linux findings.

Three months later comes the six-month report, and once again Vista comes through with flying colors.

My take is that the sheer number of flaws is important, but not the final word in security. It is possible that Mac and Linux have more flaws, but what really matters is what hackers care to attack -- and they just love attacking Windows!
