Take a look at this talk.
« on: April 15, 2009, 12:06:11 am »

On April 6, Kevin Turner (COO of Microsoft) gave a talk about "the role of CIOs in a changing economy."

Here's a link:  http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/exec/turner/2009/04-06MMCIOSummit.mspx

Here's a quotation from his talk:

"Vista today, post-Service Pack 2, which is now in the marketplace, is the safest, most reliable OS we've ever built. It's also the most secure OS on the planet, including Linux and open source and Apple Leopard. It's the safest and most secure OS on the planet today."

Thoughts, anyone?

I didn't feel like reading the whole thing, but the above statement is nothing new. I remember reading sponsored research results saying the same thing about WXP.

Just for the record, if I had to guess I would say that OpenBSD is a pretty clear choice for "most secure OS on the planet."

eh eh eh

did a string search on the text. "Microsoft" shows up 29 times, "Vista" 14 times, but "Safe" shows up twice, "secure" twice, and "reliable" only once --- as did "Linux" once.

However, a search in between the lines, showed "Vista" occuring with "bloated" and "chagrined" 346 times.
