LXer: Red Hat rebuts CERT vulnerability figures

Published at LXer:

The open source community is up in arms after the publication of a 'misleading and confusing' report that said more vulnerabilities were found in Linux/Unix operating systems than in Windows last year [ED: Pretty good write up with a nice ending - HC] "You should look at the number of critical vulnerabilities. It's a better comparison to look at the critical vulnerabilities that affect customers due to the platform they use. There are fewer critical vulnerabilities, and they are fixed faster in Red Hat Linux," said Cox. "There is also the issue of timing. With Linux products, critical updates are available within a day. If you look at Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, the average patch time is under a day. With the recent critical WMF (Windows Meta File) vulnerability, it took Microsoft seven days." Microsoft was not available for comment at the time of writing.

I wont be leaving GNU/Linux for any has only to gain some more positions in the market to have hardware built for it!
