I've noticed a couple of articles of late from pretty authoratitive sources stating what a lot of us already knew. This being that Microsoft Windows is a security liability.

This first link is from Dell. It clearly states in point 6 of the page that Ubuntu offers more security than Windows. Also, further down the page, it lists Ubuntu's anti virus and anti spyware apps as unwarranted!* I hope this page stays up and doesn't mysteriously disappear within a few days...

On killing Apophis...

Posted 06-11-2010 at 06:26 PM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

The asteroid Apophis, named for the Egyptian god of destruction, is a very dangerous one, especially for its projected path. NASA traced its history and projected its future path. They found that it would make a close enough pass to Earth in 2029 to dip below our communications satellites! They also found, after further study, that it would make an even closer pass in 2036, close enough to potentially pass into Earth's atmosphere and out again.

There have been several studies about...
