Morphos A new product arises from Genesi: The Open Desktop Workstation is based upon the Genesi Pegasos, a CHRP based motherboard. Integrating selected Open Firmware and running multiple (15+) operating systems, the Workstation is an extremely efficient, very expandable hardware solution for personal and business computer requirements. Both IBM and Motorola feature the new product in their pages.

Both Gnome and KDE are way ahead of Windows 95. I would put them somewhere between Win2K and XP.

A fair number of Mac bashers came out of the Windows camp - and, while you point out that there are KDE themes that mimic Aqua, you don't mention that the latest Mac OS is essentially true Unix and have great CLI capabilities.

I'm sure that most who have used Mac OSX don't mind paying $129 for it - there are many Linux distros that cost close to that. What irritates me is that Apple wants full price for point releases which, in both the Windows and *nix world would be free downloads.

You've pretty much listed all the worms that affect Linux at present and several of these use the same exploits so if
you've patched for one, you've got them all covered.

Your reasoning about writing exploits for Linux should translate in hundreds or thousands of viruses if it were really that easy. Also, while Linux's desktop share is miniscule compared to Windows, it's quite significant on SERVERS and too be quite frank, I think most crackers would rather hose a server than somebody's personal computer.
