Privacy, Security, Encryption I've bored the readers of my personal website to death with two rather prosaic articles debating the Linux security model, in direct relation to Windows and associated claims of wondrous infections and lacks thereof. However, I haven't yet discussed even a single program that you can use on your Linux machine to gauge your security. For my inaugural article for OSNews, I'll leave the conceptual stuff behind, and focus on specific vectors of security, within the world of reason and moderation that I've created and show you how you can bolster a healthy strategy with some tactical polish, namely software.

Linux also ships with more outdated and insecure packages, than the latest version of Windows.

Because Windows retail boxes update themselves while sitting on the shelves at the store, right?

Ah, thanks for that heads up. That Windows shipping with more up to date programs and patches would explain the 80 fed into my shiny new Windows machine last Friday.
