Privacy, Security, Encryption Open source experts have hit back at a study published by the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team that said more vulnerabilities were found in Linux/Unix than in Windows in 2005, labelling the report misleading and confusing. The report has attracted criticism from the open source community. Linux vendor Red Hat said the vulnerabilities had been miscategorised, and so could not be used to compare the relative security of Windows and Linux/Unix platforms.

who asserts that by looking at any list of vulnerabilities, that you can judge a systems security in the real world, actually work with security in the real world?

Frankly I would rather read about articles and their comments like "A Naive User's Guide to Running Windows More Securely" or similar than listen to people who don't actually care about security and are more interested in twisting statistics to make their OS look secure.

I secure my OS's because I know they are insecure. I am not blind.
