Quick Thought on Windows Vista Security
- Internet Geeks: Linux and mac are so much more secure than windows! Look at how few vulnerabilities there are for them!
- Microsoft and Friends: Those OSs only have a few percent of the market share, so they aren’t targeted hardly as much, so of course there are less! Our OS is dominant so it’s a much bigger target you silly little linux nerds!
And now with Vista….
- Microsoft and Friends: Vista is so much more secure than XP! Look at how few vulnerabilities there are for it!
- Internet Geeks: […]
So should the Linux geeks response to the security in Vista be the same as it was from Microsoft about market share? A lot of the tech news and podcasts I read and listen to note that Vista doesn’t seem to have the market penetration that it should have (a few of the TWiT podcasts have pointed out that the number of Vista users doesn’t match anywhere near what it should compared to the number of new computers produced).
Anyway, just a thought….
