Mozilla & Gecko clones Peter Watson, chief security advisor at Microsoft Australia and New Zealand, said that the software maker did not get any pleasure from seeing Firefox suffer a string of security vulnerabilities, despite the open-source browser's growth seemingly being stunted over recent months. "I don't think it creates any benefit for us or anybody in the ecosystem to turn around and say, 'it's good that this company has a whole load of security vulnerabilities'," said Watson.

*nix is secure by design, and insecure by use of incompetent administrators.

Windows is insecure by design, and somewhat secure by use of competent administrators.

What's really funny is all the MS-lovers which cannot se anything wrong with MS, not even when they make a nasty comment like this one from P. Watson.

BTW: Don't forget that several FF-flaws are Windows Only flaws, since they are based on flaws in the underlying OS. Basically FF developers are fixing security holes in Windows ;)
