Whatever, that DOES NOT make it less secure than Windows Vista.iMav said:oh say open bsd closed bsd which ever bsd ... installing anything on it is not simple alwys go into tht terminal ... if thts wat u call usable then sorry yaar doesnt fit into my definition
Agreed , that doesn't .kalpik said:Whatever, that DOES NOT make it less secure than Windows Vista.
kalpik said:Again, the title says "Vista is still the most secure OS to date." Now am i blind or what? I cannot seem to find the word "desktop" in the title.
So if I install the ATI drivers (which have disclosed exploits...doh?) on my Vista system, I'll be ok as long as I don't use DVD's or pen-drives?Zeeshan Quireshi said:But going by the same notion , if you don't plugin any pen-drive in to your Vista , don't use DVD's etc then Vista(or for that matter any OS) is as secure
Hrmmm...was OpenBSD on the graph?iMav said:rocket u seem to have missed the graph for some reason, it is a plot of vulnerabilties disclosed but not patched & patched ... and in that vista has the lowest and on that basis vista is more secure, some may say that vista is new and hence has very less vulnerabilities and some may say that in 5 years MS has been able to do a fairly decent job
iMav said:but unfortunately the later cannot happen coz most pll are anti_ms anyways
This is a forum, not a private meeting to be discussing things and clearing concepts!!Man , the reply wasn't even to your post , Rocket357 replied that BSD will support devices if hardware vendors release it's specifications to BSD team . and as most user-product hardware vendors don't take *NIX as serious business area so they won't support it initially(then OS drivers will be made by reverse engineering and the likes and then the hardware will be supported).
I guess u forgot that an end-user isn't interested in reasons, and why MS doesn't provides drivers,antivirus,infection resistance,office etc!! Its sad u can't keep up with the enlightenment of ur fellow musketeer!Yes , it does not play ISO files coz it's meant to play Media files and ISO files r specialized data files that contain media files , so u can mount an ISO file and en play it normally using WMP .
And when we start talking about beryl u guys start crying! Please don't talk selectively or just talk straight to the topic of this thread!! Its all about security, not eye candy!!just compare the UI of WMP to MPlayer and you'll know what i mean(or should i provide screenshots).
U shud ask this to the other 2 musketeers of ur group who r trolling around, out of words and deviating it to desktops,popularity,eyecandy or wateva they know to whine about!!Going by your way , even i can say GNU Linux cannot play games , so do i have to bring this up each and every time in a thread ?
Typical words of an MS-fanboy who questions popularity of DRM in INDIA and then on other talks about piracy to prove his pwned points!! Who talked about media format? Did u went to MS today that u lost the iota of brain cells u were having? Ofcors why shud I use a 3rd party mounting software, follow a set of steps to mount it and then watch an ISO DVD. Talk about practicality, this is INDIA and in many places including Delhi people rent DVDs and form ISOs so as to watch anytime they want and delete it after that. Even a noobie will luv to watch it as easily as mplayer lets u see it like many do in my area and around the globe!!My Fellow ignorant forum member, mind telling us here whether ISO is one of the most widely used Media format out there or not.? Mind telling us how u ge ISO files (piracy)? Mind telling us, how mplayer plays ISO files without mounting

@rocket: Looks nice...may be u can give a tutorial on OSS section!!
and where did anybody say that u said so???iMav said:a few mis-conceptions i never said bsd is more vulnerable than windows ...
yeah and i'm still laughing at the same thing!!iMav said:...i said it is as vulnerable...
it can imply only 2 things:iMav said:...but infra dude i tried installing my display card drivers on slax kill bill edition and if thats any thing that u call usable then u got to be kidding me
and you call this a usable system??!!!Zeeshan Quireshi said:...if you don't plugin any pen-drive in to your Vista , don't use DVD's etc then Vista(or for that matter any OS) is as secure
mediator said:And yea I think we discussed the mounting thing. I still can't stop laughing on u where u showed ur ignorance
