Pretty But Buggy Vista – Most Secure OS?

In my opinion, Microsoft all the past years, since the first version of Windows until the latest Vista release [1], focuses mostly on adding new features than maintaining a secure kernel.

Microsoft is also the operating system (OS) market dominator, meaning that is the main target for crimeware/malware writers – responsible for a very big percent of worldwide cyber-crimes.

Which OS do you prefer for more security? Linux,Windows or any other? Of course, in my view, falling or not a victim of a security exploit depends on the crucial factor of how well you manage the security the OS, services, applications and devices connected to the internet. With a few words: the overall security of your system. It also depends on how efficient and effective are your security vulnerabilities patch management skills.

 

Do you agree?

    I agree with this… Everybody knows that Linux is far more secure than windows. However windows are having so many features that enable users to have a nice time using them…
