Bugs & Viruses Whenever the Conficker worm comes up here on OSNews (or any other site for that matter) there are always a number of people who point their fingers towards Redmond, stating that it's their fault Conifcker got out. While Microsoft has had some pretty lax responses to security threats in the past, it handled the whole Conficker thing perfectly, releasing a patch even before Conficker existed, and pushing it through Windows Update. In any case, this made me wonder about Linux distributions and security. What if a big security hole pops up in a Linux distribution - who will the Redmond-finger-pointing people hold responsible?

Who is the who blaming Microsoft and therefore blamed by you? Would you please give some cites or original links? It seems an article imagining some stupid users (and hint they are Linux users) and then claim part of (hint a large part) users (of Linux) are stupid. What a winding reasoning!
