Microsoft Windows: Insecure by Design

last modified 2006-02-22 03:47 PM

While I like to focus on why FOSS products are good, once in a while we need to remember why Microsoft (and most proprietary software) is so bad.

This article from the Washington Post does a good job of explaining why Misrosoft OSes are so vulnerable, in comparison to the FOSS alternatives - MAC OS X and Linux. This is a good time to point out that the underlying engine of the MAC OS X is a FOSS operating system.

My favorite quote:

    In its default setup, Windows XP on the Internet   
    amounts to a car parked in a bad part of town, 
    with the doors unlocked, the key in the ignition 
    and a Post-It note on the dashboard saying, 
    "Please don't steal this."
