Privacy, Security, Encryption "All too often people talk about the disadvantages of the Windows operating system: it has too many security flaws, it is not properly patched, it is not security oriented… Until the much talked about Vista system finally reaches our computers, there will still be plenty of time to protest. However, with the new malware dynamic, the idea that malware is restricted to specific operating systems is becoming anachronistic. It no longer matters whether the victim is a home-user or a company employee. It is now irrelevant whether the system administrator is just someone who lives round the corner or a highly qualified IT manager."

Sounds like the author's company is trying to break in to the Linux market for security products.

What Linux market for security products is this?

I see no evidence anywhere that there is such a market.

There is a market, it may be small but:

Snort, IPTables, Sophos AV, ClamAV, Panda GateDefender etc...

Of course spreading FUD and Doomsday stories is a well known technique for increasing security markets.
