Washington Post Says Small Businesses Should Dump Windows

OK, so that's kind of a "gotcha" headline, but now that we've (hopefully) got you, The Washington Post really did publish an item this week saying that small-business owners should switch from Windows to Linux if they want to bank securely online. The author of the Post's blog entry, Brian Krebs, even gives a whole, long tutorial on how to use Linux on a Windows machine.

Take that for what it's worth. At RCPU, we stuff all our extra cash (and there's not much of it these days) under our mattress. Just kidding. But it might not be a bad idea...
