Yeah, there was a theoretical virus scare for linux a few months back and action was taken...Linus patched the kernel the next day lol. With linux the updates are almost always there and its your fault if you don't have it. With windows you are at the mercy of M$ to do a cost benefit analysis to see whether its worth them investing development time on a security hole.

I mostly use linux because its free and changes happen so much faster. I get bored with operating systems pretty quickly. The only issues I have with linux are support for non free formats and stuff.

Overall I dont like Firefox 2.0 as much as I liked 1.5, mostly because of the massive drain on resources that it is. I feel like they've added a lot of features that pump up the mem usage.


However, I looked at IE7 today, and it is clean and pretty, that's for sure.

I like the UI of IE7 but it will forever be a resource hog.
