If you haven't read this article, I think you should take the time. I personally think it's a beauty and one of the best logical comparisons of Windows and Linux security I have read. It's biggest asset is it is so simple to read and understand....even by an "oldie" like me. Have fun.

>Roads and canals were often privately owned (as were fire departments and police forces in many cases) and eventually it became apparent that these are all public goods, so they were essentially taken over by the government. Similarly, power companies and railroads.

MS, Apple, IBM & co. may say it's a dangerous reasoning if it were applied to the dollar. The whole world may say : "Hey, we all use the dollar for big business, it should be a worldwide public entity and not privately owned !"

Quoting:the entire route is blocked by a series of doors that only specific people have permission to open, at specific times, for specific reasons. Everything you do requires having permission at every step of of the way, and it is all constantly being carefully watched.

this is describing linux, but my first thought was the annoying permission popups in windows. ;-)

Quoting:The desktop provides the user experience, and the user experience sells the product.

it is not the desktop user experience that sells windows, but the preinstalled nature of it. GNOME or KDE were preinstalled on every computer, it would sell, and the majority would not have any need to switch to windows.

greetings, eMBee.
