Mac OS X less secure than Vista?
Time for the Mac fanboys to wipe the smug look off of your face, and bow down to the OS with less holes. According to prize-winning security researcher Dino Dai Zovi, Microsoft Vista is a more secure OS than Apples OS X 10.4 when it comes to vulnerabilities.
"I have found the code quality, at least in terms of security, to be much better overall in Vista than Mac OS X 10.4. It is obvious from observing affected components in security patches that Microsoft's Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) has resulted in fewer vulnerabilities in newly written code. I hope that more software vendors follow their lead in developing proactive software security development methodologies."

There is a snow ball in hell enjoying the weather right now!
