Subject: Microsoft prepares security assault on Linux

again many folks forget that Red Hat is not Linux..only the linux kernel 
is linux..the rest are third party if you really want apples to 
apples..then take MS and their(ie is critical to the os and therefore 
part of the OS therefore making it native to the kernel) and the Linux 
kernel and check will be many orders of magnitude 
worse..apples to apples that is..:)

My "foundation" verse:
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
