As Steven's own story on the report shows, the main finding, counterintuitive to many, is that there is no obvious answer to the question of whether Windows or Linux is more secure than the other. It depends on your point of view. I came away from the report thinking, as I have always thought, that the main variable is the dedication of administrators and a given organization to security. compelet story

The Openwall Linux kernel patch is a collection of security "hardening" features for the Linux kernel which can stop most 'cookbook' buffer overflow exploits. The patch can also add more privacy to the system by restricting access to parts of /proc so that users may not see what others are doing. Also tightens down file descriptors 0, 1, and 2, implements process limits and shared memory destruction. Changes: Ported to kernel v2.2.26. Homepage: http://www.openwall.com/linux
