I wrote on the need for Linux migration before reading an interview with Bill Gates which did not change my opinion one little bit. Do you want control over what is going on inside your own computer? Tough cookies, cowboy:
Microsoft is also going to make sure that people install firewalls and updates by default…. From now on, Microsoft will install these patches automatically.
Bill’s claim that Windows gets patched quicker than Linux has also been vigorously contested, as one buglog posted recently showed that it took Microsoft, not the 24 or 40 hours as claimed by Bill, but 2000 hours, to patch a bug that cropped up in August.
