This another damn assertion about Windows.

I'm on the CERT  list (Computer Emergency  Response Team) for the French
National   Research Network. I   did  statistics on their  vulnerability
alerts. And  believe me or  not, but over  almost  a year 1/3  where for
Windows, 1/3 for Linux and 1/3 for other OS (mostly SunOS).

So Windows is not more vulnerable, but it is probably
a better target because it is much more widely spread.

Ok, I'll stop there.
