Privacy, Security, Encryption "Starting today, I plan on posting a monthly vulnerability scorecard for common server and workstation Operating System products. I'm going to keep these scorecards pretty clean of discussion, but you can review my methodology, sources and assumptions." Note that these results speak only of fixed vulnerabilities; the author aims to include information on non-fixed problems and the time it takes to fix problems as well. You should also read this, by the way.

However, he is not counting fixed vulnerabilities for Linux. And his number for XP is ridicilous low compared with the number of fixed vulnerabilities updated through Windows Update.

He is comparing apples with oranges, and he knows it. Explains he is "Exactly how biased am I?" article. The answer is irrelevant, because the real question is: "How flawed is my methodology?" - and the answer is "Critically Flawed"
