LOL you lost your job because you are ill informed, this is proof in the fact that you attacked me personally and could not provide an informed rebutal to my facts. I am not vomiting up patently incorrect facts and deliberate misdirection at all just providing correct facts about something that seems to be a bit skewed here since most people on this site are 100% pro-Unix, which is not a bad thing but more often then not does not allow for any other points of view, Unix is right Windows is wrong get over it.
My point is that Linix will NEVER become a driving force for the desktop until it receives the backing of mainstream software vendors who write programs for it. If you walk into any software store you find 90% Windows based programs 9% Mac and if your lucky 1% Unix or Linux. The fact that hackers, crackers and virus writers attack Windows is simply due to Windows having the largest market share. If you look to the automotive industry aftermarket parts are not made for rare cars but they are made for the most popular. Why because they will be purchased and that is where the market for the parts are. Same goes here why write a virus that will infect 1% of the desktop market or even 10% of the desktop market. If you want to get noticed you write it for the 90% of the market i.e. Windows.
Recently, there was a competition for exploiting browsers and the first to fall was Safari for Mac, the next was Firefox, then IE8. Does this mean that Mac is easier to exploit then Windows?
