Windows "As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades." Not bad, but there are the usual asterisks, as Ars notes.

Well that was a lot of rubbish.

Pretty much everything you said may have been true until about 2003, which is almost 10 years ago now.

Also Windows has their equivalents to pretty much every security feature you could list of Linux.

Sorry ... keeping the firewall off is still dumb.

Also NT has always been designed as a multi-user OS, it just the desktop versions of Windows only allow one person logged it at a time (well that isn't really true anymore either).
