    Flames and rhetoric! My favorite! ;)

    I don't care what you're talking about. It's irrelevant. Completely irrelevant. Market share has very little to do with actual system security. Moving on.

    It is pretty obvious you don't like Microsoft products. Cool. Good for you.;)

    Please read this again:

    Do you understand that statement?

    Well then, how are Admin/SU rights granted to the malware? How does this happen? Some magic password? No... Brute force? Sometimes, but both systems would be equally affected.

    Also, please read this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_engineering_(security)

    And finally, understand that Social Engineering is the way 99% of exploits are performed. Both operating systems fix larger loopholes, and neither one of them stay open for attack for long.

    Edit: Just want to add, I'm not going to discount other exploits that can be performed without user interaction at all. Sometimes a well scripted website can knock any OS on it's ass. It's true, it happens every day. To all operating systems.

    To say one OS is more secure than another is laughable, they all have exploits. Even if there is only one exploit, it doesn't matter the system has been compromised.

    To this day, there is no such operating system that does not have an exploit.

    The number of exploits each operating system has is irrelevant. (Please note the difference between the amount of exploits present and the amount of exploits discovered)

    What does matter is an OS's adaptability to counter these exploits and recognize them before too much or any damage is done at all.

    To be honest, both of the latest operating systems are fairly even in this regard, whether you believe that or not, it's true.

    Comments about reading comprehension and conjecture about eye glazing are ad hominem attacks and cannot be tolerated.

    If we have a cardinal rule it's to attack issues and not other members.

    Quite simply, IOWA is correct by any reasonable measure - the user is always the weak security link.

    In future, rather than losing it and resorting to making things personal, please just agree to disagree and move on.
