linux is even mroe vulnerable since its open source. heck you can DoS a server though simple php message boards now!!!!!
and mess up one or two characters in teh kernal or module files and your whole system is compromized. whilist in windows you can use the xp repair function and not have to reformat to get back up and running
linux takes a good 3 hour install on my machine for even the simple distros such as redhat.
windows xp takes a good 35 minutes and thats even with reformatting.
heck server 2003 enterpise can be up and running in two hours!
and linux is waaaaaayyyy picky!
