Both. I started off with a negative feeling, then I turned my thoughts inward and tried to focus on the topic objectively. From there I just wrote about my personal truth. (Basically, I let you and the topic through my automatic defense mechanisms. It's no big deal really. Like I said, I can be annoying in the same way you initially annoyed me. Just ask my wife or even Ben. But, there are benefits to stirring up trouble, if you don't get smacked down immediately!)
Having only reviewed 1/3 of the "Open Source Security Tools" book that I received from one of our own, I would say that Linux as a security workstation, which is really just a specialized desktop, is far superior to using Windows. This is also my experience. (I'm happy to say that I haven't learned too many new tricks from the first 1/3 of the book.) This is significant considering that the book also covers security tools for Windows.
ISBN: 0321194438 I did name the book, mostly. "Open Source Security Tools: A Practical Guide to Security Applications" Hey, I wonder if that counts as my review?!

Actually, I didn't read much of the article. I read more of your commentary.<>
Well, Windows itself can be run from within Linux? Which Windows programs would you need to run under Linux? (I'm sorry if I missed any earlier discussion on this topic. Just like in the real world, I'm not always paying attention like I should.)
I don't think M$ Office will be officially ported if M$ can help it. Other than that, who knows?
