Yeah I agree, thiussat. I don't know how it ever got misconstrued that I'm proposing Linux "is bulletproof" since any fool knows that no code is, let alone an entire OpSys. I'm just convinced that Linux is in most cases more secure by default and always in all cases possible to harden to an improved state that Windows can't match, for whatever reason, but Obscurity is not the only one.

@Karath - It is now a matter of record as to whether my links are in any way spun or "out of context" so kindly stop pressing for some misguided sense of triumph just because you apparently view my honesty and objectivity as "weakness". That would be an ill-advised conclusion. The consensus here, FWIW, is obviously that while Windows has improved, and apart from theoretical options, only being concerned with the realities of actual vulnerability on actual installations, Linux has a respectable edge, especially in Mission Critical applications.

We are now at a point of splitting hairs and the record stands. There is nothing to be gained at this point by "beating a dead horse" , and this argument appears now dead. It was only a fine point from the start.
