The Register reports on a new study that attempts to settle once and for all the Linux v Windows security debate. Unsurprisingly, Linux comes out smelling of roses, while Windows is attacked for having a bad track record in fixing vulnerabilities.

This would seem quite straightforward, telling us stuff that we already know. However, this is an area of heated debate, as some defenders of Windows (generally, those in Bill’s payroll) have claimed that Windows is not that vulnerable and that Linux is guilty of many problems as well.

This report finally lays the claims to rest. Read the PDF here.

I don't think we'll _ever_ lay those claims to rest. There are _always_ peopl who will say that the report was compiled in a biased way.
