Bugs & Viruses Whenever the Conficker worm comes up here on OSNews (or any other site for that matter) there are always a number of people who point their fingers towards Redmond, stating that it's their fault Conifcker got out. While Microsoft has had some pretty lax responses to security threats in the past, it handled the whole Conficker thing perfectly, releasing a patch even before Conficker existed, and pushing it through Windows Update. In any case, this made me wonder about Linux distributions and security. What if a big security hole pops up in a Linux distribution - who will the Redmond-finger-pointing people hold responsible?

Europe is different. There is another culture, different geographics, and different history. In the netherlands you can smoke pot but you can't have a gun like in the US. The place is overcrowded and has been a central place in WW2. I see people from the US telling the europeans what to do and people from Europe telling the americans what to do. If I were from the netherlands I would tell you that you should build see walls in the US. Telling people in other countries what they should do is so pointless and stupid that that makes me laugh.
