Privacy, Security, Encryption A Computerworld editorial takes note of some interesting changes Dell made to the Linux page we linked to last week. They watered down some of their pro-Linux claims, but not as far as you might think.

Microsoft's hands on Dell's throat

It's pretty clear that Microsoft has a firm grip on Dell. Why else would Dell retract their statement? Is it a crime to tell the truth? Linux IS more secure than Windows, that's just a fact. Windows fanboys will claim otherwise, but let's just look at the facts. I have used Windows and Linux for over 13 years in all environments. I've been extremely careful with Windows and have been hit with viruses before. I've seen restricted users get viruses from just browsing websites. I've migrated to Linux (Fedora) as of 2 years ago, and I'll never look back.
