Windows vs Linux, which is more secure?
First and foremost, I want to apologize for crossposting. I'm pretty much new to the linux world, and loving it. However, I had a question I wanted to pose to everyone and see if you guys can help me get some information. My boss is a BIG windows fan, and he knows that I've been tinkering with Linux. He keeps bragging about how he read in some article for some PC magazine where some security expert said that Linux has just as many security holes and prone to hacking as windows. He also added that the only reason windows has so many more hacks is because hackers hate it and it's more popular. Now, I would really like to ask you guys this. Is what he saying true? I thought I had heard that Linux was more secure. Do you guys know of any articles that I can read that say the opposite of what he's telling me. I'd really love to shut him up. lol.. THanks
