I?d like to clarify a bit...
I do agree that Microsoft?s security issues are not solely the result of being the ?big dog?, but rather because of their fundamentally flawed development/business model. Note that development and business go together in the case of Microsoft, and therein lies the problem. Until solid code is seen as good business, we likely can expect more of the same. Too, it?s human nature to pick on the weak, no matter how big they are. In reference to security by obscurity, I consider a person who can get into a BSD box unauthorized to be more of a threat than script kiddies that download their ?skills? from a cracking site. Also, keep in mind that the site that the article is published on is written for small business folks who like buzzwords
