Editorial After reading Adam Scheinberg's original article "The Paradox of Choice" and Kevin Russo's response, I want to add my personal comments to this discussion. I will quote Adam and Russo several times and pick up their arguments.

Well, to everyone saying to "use Linux binaries from 2001 and see how long it takes to get infected"

OK...

go and grab some *redhat* 7.1 ISO images here

ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/7.1/en/iso/i386/

during the install you will see this:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.1-Manual/install-gui...

and to let you know:
redhat 7.1 release date: (different from timestamps of ISOs) 04/16/2001. This was months before Windows XP was even released to Manufacturers.
