Privacy, Security, Encryption Apple's OS X, Microsoft Windows, and Linux operating systems are to be pitted against each other in an ethical hacking contest in Vancouver next month. Run by the organizers of the CanSecWest Vancouver 2008 security conference, the competition is a repeat of the 'PWN to Own' contest at CanSecWest in 2007, when security researchers competed to win a MacBook Pro and USD 10000.

The most interesting point is...last year they did not compete to win a new Linux laptop, or Vista machine. The prize was a MacBook Pro and $10K.

Yes, yes. I'm sure with $10K, they could have easily sold the MBP and buy nearly any rig they want, but it's all in the marketing!
