    LOL this reminds me of the time I got the “System Tool 2011″ Malware on my Windows partition and it would only boot in Safe mode. I had to use Linux to browse the internet to find a solution. May the day that DirectX becomes obsolete come swiftly!

    “Linux is not only the most secure operating system, but also the best antivirus too!”
    Can you support that statement?

      Yes. CIA, NASA, Google, Facebook, CERN, and every huge company or organization that needs security most of all, use Linux

       Look to the author certificates to know why he is saying Linux is not secure :)

    ” Linux is not only the most secure operating system, but also the best antivirus too! |

    This is bullshit. Any standard UNIX is more safe than even LINUX Servers. And a heavily optimized and secured Windows 7 isnt that bad anymore and is comparable to standard out of the Box Ubuntu in terms of security.

      Heavily optimized and secured vs Out of the box… Is this a comparison really? And even if it is, why don’t you compare an out of the box Red Hat Enterprise Linux instead of Ubuntu?

        “And a heavily optimized and secured Windows 7 isnt that bad anymore”

        is the bit that goes

        “isnt that bad anymore”

        …. Damned by faint praise

        You should buy a lottery ticket too, then.  Because I work 40 hours a week doing online computer support, and a lot of the machines I remove malware from are running WSE.  Or Norton.  Or McAfee.  Or AVG.  Or some other well-known AV product.  Or a combination of 2 or 3.  Stuff gets in, no matter what, it seems.

    Wow. Old news is old. Next they are probably going to report Windows is using the NT kernel, or that Microsoft has money. Obvious shit is obvious. Guess what? AVG, Avira, and Bit Defender rescue CDs are also linux-bootable! Does this news teach us anything new? No. Move along then…

      I did not put this article in the “news” category, so I don’t understand what your frustration is

       This isnt news to you but maybe it is to others.

      I use Mac at work and have been using Linux (KDE) since 06′-’07 on all our home desktops and laptop/netbooks, even my work Mac dualboots Linux.

      How would I know what anti-virus rescue disks looks like? I keep an old XP partition for 2 pieces of software-games and ive taken it offline but I have little interest in caring about anti virus stories again.

       So what you are actually saying is that Microsoft is becoming more and more irrelevant.  Yeah, that sounds about right.

      They can’t even keep their own software free from malware.  And the multi-billion dollar security industry they spawned just to keep their software afloat on the Internet is beginning to rely on GNU/Linux.  What does that say about Microsoft software?  Basically it says it’s krapp.
