 Operating Systems Get Poor Security Grade

Linux Planet talks to Gene Spafford about OS security.

"Windows is awful, but well, so is Linux. Neither presents an environment that your average business user or government user or home user is able to install and use out of the box without worries. And in fact, if you look at your typical Linux distributions, with all of these tools and extra drivers and everything that's thrown on, a lot of that is programmed by people without training, without careful thought, and without careful design."
