    Windows Is More Secure Than Linux. Its Official

    Just to give you two hints. They are on the Microsoft Site and they wre sponsered by Microsoft. Which means they are probably a load of brass monkeys, but at least it should brighten your day.

    I fail to see how micros**t can say its better. Ive been using win since 3.x, and from 95 onwards for sure, as soon as they release (ahead of shcedule) they then start releasing patches from the first month.
    Installing win xp was a nightmare for having to download / install patches. But seeing as they paid for the research, its not surprising that its in their favour.

    But my technical question for you is. Windows is being hacked because sooo many people use it, so all the hackers concentrate on it, plus its naff anyway, but is it a case of linux is more secure because its not as popular as win in the sense that the general masses use it, and not just tech buffs, but if linux was being used by as many people as win is, would the hackers then move to linux and find as many hacks as win ?????? Hope this makes sense.

Please expect these topics to be locked on sight from now on, if you are reading this, please take this as a hint not to post them any more
    Nevermore. Locked.
