Apple It's the end of the line for Apple's line of servers, the Xserve. The Cupertino giant has just announced that the Xserve line (no more future models, either) will no longer be sold after January 31, 2011, and advises people interested in Mac OS X Server to buy either a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro with Snow Leopard Server installed.

Were can I see that stats for this?

Overall, using Secunia's stats as a comparison between system security seems (as they themselves state) pointless. There's no available information on the severity of vulnerabilities, and they don't even take into account whether or not they've been patched or not when counting the vulnerabilities. Having 7% of known vulnerabilities unpatched as is listed for Windows 2008 however, seems very bad.


Find a vulnerability in Server 2008 this year that was as bad as the last 3 kernel exploits. You won't be able to.

These were actively exploited vulnerabilities. Web hosts had major headaches from them.

Note that the BSDs and Solaris have been safer for web hosts as well. Linux + Apache is an unsafe combination compared to the alternatives.
