I did not state that Vista was less secure, only that it has not been proven yet that it is more secure. You are reading between the lines, and not at what I wrote.
Bloated SW has more parts that can be problematic. And yes, most SW from large vendors are bloated as they add new features often to create more capitol by selling the new and improved versions.
Vista is a much larger OS than previous ones, yes it does do more as well, but being larger (many more lines of code) can create more unexpected results (security holes, bugs, etc.).
And finally, it is well documented, even by MS that there are many known issues/bugs with the OS. That didnt stop them from releasing Win2k which had more than 28,000 upon release date, and it did not stop them from releasing Vista either.
So your assessment of my comments was really not correct. If you are going to accuse me of not liking Vista, you are correct, and I have never stated otherwise. All that aside, I was just commenting on the article and a few issues that I saw with it, although I did like the article.
