And not a joke. Majority of linux users that I see here are plainly arrogant. Get your head out of your butt for five seconds and admit that all OSes have their faults and whether you use one or the other is personal choice and not that one is necessarily better than the other.
Read what I said.
I was saying that as long as you update your system and pay attention, the bug this article is talking about is not going to be a major problem. I never said Windows. You said that this is not an easy fix, when in fact, if you keep up to date and pay attention to what you are told, it'll be fixed quickly - so the only reason anything would remain vulnerable is user error.
I have never claimed that Linux doesn't have it's faults. In fact, I say, and I quote:
I'm not saying it wasn't a problem, but the article and posts after it imply that it makes Linux suddenly insecure in general, which is wrong.
This article is sensationalist and isn't sudden proof Windows is secure and Linux isn't.
Yes, it is a personal choice, and some people will be better off with different OSes, but that doesn't mean I can't say what I like about my OS, tell others about it so they have the opportunity to make that choice, or say why I believe it is better for me and for others.
You are the person here trying to conform people to your view by denying others the chance to give their view, while acting like it's a moral act. Please.
You are just a troll. And this thread is just FUD
