It's funny you say BSD is useless on the desktop...They make wonderful desktops as long as you don't whine every time you have to *gasp*...do something manually or *gasp* have to learn how something works!

Security? Forget it! It's more important that I guard my ability to use my computer without having to figure anything out!

Long live Bill Gates! (yes, I'm being sarcastic)

BlueHat Security Briefings : Vista and Vigilance

"One has to admit that Vista is arguably the most secure closed-source OS available on the market. Microsoft did do a good job at addressing the issues of previous Windows versions. Progress on all fronts has been achieved, and MS is probably better than any other closed-source software vendor when it comes to the the security of their products.

This makes it difficult for attackers. The cost of developing an exploit for Vista is significantly higher than for any previous versions.

As a result, I think that most of the security researchers will move on to greener pastures for a while. Why try to chase a difficult overflow out of Vista when you have Acrobat Reader installed, some Antivirus software with shoddy file parsing, and the latest ITunes ?

I expect only a small number of remotely exploitable vulnerabilities in Vista. We will see everybody else getting hammered though. But, for a while, there will be (relative) quiet and calm in Redmond."

Indeed. It's sad, but true. Microsoft has done well. That blog was well written, and precise.

Too bad this thread doesn't claim "closed-source"... =D
