    Win XP : 10(dangerous)

    Linux : 6 (unsafe)

    You need to subscribe to be able to read the rest

    Even as we settle down to tell this story, we’ve resigned ourselves to the inevitable. A storm of indignant protests will follow and advocates of each Operating System will hurl obscenities at us for having sold our souls. That is pretty much the same thing that Forrester Research (www.forrester.com), a research firm, had to face when it released the outcome of a year-long study in March 2004 which compared the types and seriousness of security holes in Windows as opposed to that in various distributions of Linux.
    Wasn't this because MS sponsered Forrester?
