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.

Dude,

I hope you don't mind me calling you "Dude", but that *is* the "Real name" that you supply in your user profile.

Why show up with guns blazing like this?

Read over the links. Read the posts.

Come to your own conclusions.

But such a confrontational style, and repeated use of the term "a$$hole", does not improve your credibility any more than it would help an OSS advocate who used that style and nomenclature.

I'm an OSS advocate. If you happen to be a Microsoft advocate, then you would do best to *advocate*, and not sabotage your own position by name calling and being generally confrontational without prior provocation.

"""Well OSS zealots are a$$holes.. what can i do?"""

Well, let's look at that.

Are all OSS users a$$holes? Are all OSS users zealots?

I would answer "no" to both of those questions, but I am asking what your answers are.

I see far too much intolerance everywhere, in every community.

Bias, IMO, is something that is not a bad thing. It is a natural, normal, and nearly unavoidable condition.

You have your biases. I have my biases.

It is denial of bias that can be harmful.

Stop every now and then and consider that no community is of a piece... unless that piece happens to be a tapestry.
