A national survey of Software Development managers showed an overwhelming number believe Linux is more secure than Windows.
Asked to rate the security of server operating environments against operating system related hacks and exploits, Windows Server fared worst by far. Some 58% rated Windows Server very insecure or insecure versus 13% for Linux. Sun Solaris fared best, with only 6% rating the operating system very insecure or insecure. On the positive side, some 74% of respondents rated Linux secure or very secure versus only 38% for Windows Server.
Ballmer must be scrambling to pay for yet another FUD survey disproving the results, or at least throwing a few chairs around.
