Microsoft is doing a great job in security, at least on servers where I use some of its software, in the late years. Linuxe, err, I mean some people (followers of the mighty Bruce Perens) just don't like of Microsoft. The comparison became more conclusive if you follow Apache in the 1.3 release and includes IIS 5.x and 4.0.
