this is an opinion ... not a fact ... www.hackinthebox.org was once
giving out a top 20 list of sites which were most orginally hacked ...
not a single unix machine on their list ... www.attrition.org has more info
on what systems get hacked, and nt leads the pack, even though it is the
least used of the lot as http servers.

does this mean that the unicode bug is, finally, fixed ... 'cos i've seen
script kiddies who don't know what a nybble is hack IIS, but get totally
lost on UNIX systems ... sure bind has it's share of problems, but subscribe
to the mailing lists www.securityfocus.com ... a real eyeopener if you
think that unix is easier to crack than nt.

serious multi-user environments, unlike windows which evolved from a single-user
single-tasking os with no security at all ...

i'm sorry  -  openbsd is probably *THE* most secure os on the planet ...
go to the website and read up about it (not too sure what it is, but should be
easy to find, considering it's popularity) ... be prepared to be impressed ...
