Re: [PLUG] "Most Secure" heh heh

Very appropriate to use any random voodoo to get help from the security gods.

Although at a higher level or "for all practical purposes" its smart not to believe Linux is automatically more secure than <whatever>, it is true that at a lower level, Linux is more secure than Windows. Different design and a better design when you get into the weeds.

The more important issue is that MS has socially engineered its users away from understanding its OS. While that might seem like a good business idea, it practice you get the situation where users are helpless to help themselves. Add a closed source methodology to that and even if you want to help yourself, you probably can't.

In the FOSS world people can be as helpless or as helpful as they want so a user is only "trapped" be their own abilities and the larger community's abilities.

If you think about it that way, the FOSS world as yet has not not been able to provide solutions **fairly quickly**- security related or otherwise.

Just ask Dick Cheney...


Any boasting or slamming of the other guy must be accompanied with a
vigorous knocking on wood.

if it's Windows, anything in the range from smirking to full out
hysterics with loss of breath is appropriate.
