Didn't feel like reading it. But the main reason Linux is more secure is that not too many people use Linux, so not NEARLY as much time is put in "hacking" Linux systems.

I once saw a chimpanzee rip a car door off a car in a documentary from the 70s.

Pretty good article, though I don't think one should judge all of Linux by Red Hat alone. There are many server distros that specialize in security.

i personally feel that mandrake or free-BSD are both better systems than red-hat ... but linux in general whips windows!

Linux :smile:


I'm running Slack 9 with custom kernel on my laptop (which is pretty much the only computer I use).  I run pekwm (very lightweight wm), with self made theme, custom made menus, blah blah blah.  I still use windows for gaming :smile:  WineX goes only so far...

i agree, but Redhat would be the best comparison for this article because of the fact that they are the biggest linux company. As you said there are many more secure distros out there. I've ran RedHat Linux, Slackware, and Gentoo on my comp while having windows xp as a dual boot. The geek in me likes the security and the feeling of having 5 terminals open at the same time. But Windows has more compatibility with current softwares because of the monopoly.

I like that system monitor you've got there.  I wouldn't mind finding one soon ...

I just started using fedora core 2 a day or two ago.  And last monday was my first time ever with linux.  So yeah I don't know anything, but this is pretty fun.
