Security comparison between Microsoft and Linux
Date: Fri, 19 Dec 2003 20:23:17 +0000
Some of the postings I read on this NG curdle my blood. What with
Virii, Trojans, Security lapses etc, etc.
So how secure is a good Linux distribution compared with Windows XP
that I am using now.
I do have a second HD running Suse, but it is very difficult to come
to terms with. MS on the other hand is a comparative doddle, but
I am not trolling in order to start a flame war, just a concerned user
who is worried at some to the threats that are out there and waiting.
