Privacy, Security, Encryption It's the time of year again, folks. "The year 2007 has been an interesting year that brought us improved security with Windows Vista and Mac OS X Leopard (10.5). But to get some perspective of how many publicly known holes found in these two operating systems, I've compiled all the security flaws in Mac OS X and Windows XP and Vista and placed them side by side. This is significant because it shows a trend that can give us a good estimate for how many flaws we can expect to find in the coming months." Do with it as you please.

Thank you for your response.

1) you had issues (your words "no huge" implies issues).
2)more important you seem to be some kind of educated user since you can detect "questionable programs".

Now you use an XP box without firewall, without AV nor AM and your not behind a router (we all now that when using a router this gives attackers more troubles) and still you never had issues... I'm sorry I don't believe you and even if you're right you certainly don't represent the vast majority of windows user I was refering to.
