Windows Microsoft has decided to rush out a fix for a flaw in Windows, saying that the problem has become too serious to ignore. The flaw, which will be patched on Tuesday, was originally disclosed to Microsoft in December, but it was not publicly reported until last week. The bug lies in the way Windows processes .ani Animated Cursor files, which are used to create cartoon-like cursors in Windows.

{Remember, writing a program for linux takes actual skill and knowledge, while any twelve year old script kiddy can make a program in visual basic}

Your statement is unfortunately now out of date, since February this year.

"Mono enables Windows .NET developers to code in C# or VB.NET using Visual Studio and .NET 1.1 or 2.0 development technologies, and then compile and run .NET code base on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, Unix and Mac OS X. Mono supports multiple languages, and both open source and commercial compilers. In February, Mono released the Mono Visual Basic Compiler, which .NET developers can use to program in Visual Basic.NET. The new compiler is written in Visual Basic and is "self-hosting."
