Comment: Refer to statistics and reports (Score 1) 674 674

Refer to reports on vulnerabilities and how fast they are fixed (sometimes statistics is the only language tey undersand).

For example:

http://secunia.com/ shows that Ubuntu 8.10 (latest stable version) has 0% unpatched advisories (0 of 41 Secunia advisories: http://secunia.com/advisories/product/20299/) while at the same time Vista has 10% unpached (5 of 51 Secunia advisories http://secunia.com/advisories/product/13223/).

Real computer scientists don't program in assembler. They don't write in anything less portable than a number two pencil.
