Linux: Now how much would you pay?
Cynical Observer writes "It's a fact that a lot of Windows users don't have a clue about security. Even companies that handle sensitive data all too often assume that their Microsoft IT people will make sure that their documents are safe. But this week's SQL Server exploit, which isn't actually an exploit at all, shows that there are a lot of IT people in the wrong business, making Microsoft products even less secure. The strongest argument yet for the adoption of Linux for security reasons is made in this column on Linux and Main."
