 Linux and Windows security compared

"While Linux provides equivalent to superior security capabilities in comparison to Windows, the security of a Linux system is largely dependent on the choice of Linux distribution, the kernel it is based on, and the skill of the IT staff in implementing and supporting the system. Since your success in implementing and maintaining a secure operating system rests with your IT shops, make sure that they have the training and expertise to deploy, manage, and troubleshoot. Formulate discipline on the part of the IT manager and system administrators who need to understand how to apply security best practices."
