“Microsoft has fixed 26 vulnerabilities in its software products, including several considered critical, the company said on Tuesday in its monthly security patch report.”
That’s the kind of news we hear every month from M$. It gives a clue to the magnitude of the insecurity of that other OS. Suppose there are a dozen critical vulnerabilities in that other OS that are fixed each month. Presumably those were all present on Day One of the release but some could be introduced in other patches. The odds are that they all existed from the last release though. If the product lasts a decade, 120 months, then we are looking at ~1K critical vulnerabilities.
Compare that with the world of FLOSS where the bug-count for a whole repository and all kinds of bugs is less than 1K…
Amazing isn’t it? For a lot less money you get to use better code. Use FLOSS. It’s the right way to do IT.
