@CrewRite yeah,it's amazing how fast and almost unnoticably people at ubuntu patch vulnerabilities.this is called ''Linus' Law''.and it's ingenious.ubuntu 10.10 is out of the cage and out of beta.everything will get owned.and there's one major reason why ubuntu is more secure-''you can see the source of every darn thing''-this is exactly why people are afraid of creating malware.if they do they'll get encarcerated.plus-ubuntu kill bugs fast.
Yes, but, Windows is Closed Source and OSX is Partly Closed Source. While Linux/Unix/OpenOS's etc. are Open Source.
When something is open, it can be patched faster, because a user with expertise can make the updates. These people don't depend on commercial giants to make the updates. Windows and OSX users depend on a company to produce the updates.
SECUNIA REPORTED 1245+ VULNERABILITIES IN RED HAT.AND WHICH MAKES IT SORTA SUSPICIOUS CAUSE IN OS X THERE WERE 1267+ VULNERABILITIES REPORTED.STRANGE.ALSO-IN UBUNTU LINUX 10.04 AND LINUX MINT 9 THERE WERE 150 VULNERABILITIES (ALMOST ALL OF THEM MINOR)REPORTED,THOUGH ALL OF THEM PATCHED,WHILE IN WIN7 THERE WERE 65(35% CRITICAL VULNERABILITIES) REPORTED AND 15% UNPATCHED.I DON'T KNOW MAYBE MICROSOFT SORTA SPONSORS SECUNIA?I DON'T KNOW.
DUDE,OS X IS BETTER THAN WINDOWS IN STABILITY,SPEED,DESIGN,EYECANDY,NO REGISTRY,NO FUCKIN FRAGMENTATION,RICHNESS OF FEATURES AND MULTIMEDIA,BUT IT HAS A REALLY GREAT LACK-THE SECURITY.YOU KNOW,SECUNIA REPORTED 1267+ VULNERABILITIES AND EVEN MORE IN OTHER APPLE PRODUCTS.APPLE CAN MAKE FAR BETTER STUFF THAN MICROSOFT,BUT THEY JUST NEED TO BE LESS GREEDY AND PAY MORE ATTENTION TO MACS.BUT NO OPERATING SYSTEM IS MATCH FOR UBUNTU 10.04/10.10 AND LINUX MINT 9.
How is Linux a generic Unix kernel? Linux was based on Minix initially, and Minix was a microkernel written from scratch. I understand Unix-like. If you look at kernel time-line graphs both Minix and Linux are separate from the Unix family tree. Please clarify. My sources are Torvalds, Tanenbaum, and Wikipedia: Linux, Minix, Unix, Unix-like, Kernel [Monolithic, Micro] and sources following the wiki sources. Please include yours
