Security Portal: Why did we say MS Linux?

“What were we thinking, how does this relate to security and
have we received medical attention? The most common comments about
our MS Linux prediction were:”

“- Boy, are you stupid
– Microsoft hates Linux
– Microsoft would never admit Linux is superior
– There is no precedent for Microsoft doing something like that
– Microsoft would not cannibalize their own operating systems and
risk all of that revenue”

“All in all, I think the readers got one out of five right.”


Update: Apparantly LT readers are very
interested in this topic. They have “slammed our servers so hard
this morning that we setup a mirror”, according to Jim Reavis of
Security Portal. The article is mirrored at
