Linux is still much more secure than Windows

In an article published earlier today by, James Bottomley, CTO of Steeleye Technology, reckons that Linux still has a big, big edge over other Operating Systems, especially Windows (no mention of he was speaking of Vista or XP) and Mac OS.

"Linux is better at locking down a computer than Windows. The Linux OS uses configuration settings and user permissions to a much more efficient degree than the Windows administrator account. To do this, non-enterprise users should seek help from third-party security suites that serve as configuration managers".
