Submission + - OS X and Linux are no magic bullet for Google (arstechnica.com)

boilednut writes: As reported by the Financial Times, Google is going to phase out internal use of Microsoft Windows due to security concerns, and will offer new employees the choice of either Linux or Mac OS X. However, contrary to common belief, this may actually result in less security — especially, against attacks similar to the Aurora hacks Google suffered last year. Windows (in particular 64-bit Windows 7) may in fact be more secure against attacks like Aurora than either Linux or Mac OS X.
