Report: Vista more secure than OS X and Linux

Report: Vista more secure than OS X and Linux – Filed under: Desktops, Laptops, Media PCs Attention Linux, Vista, and Apple fan boys: put on your gloves… it’s time to rumble! A 6-month vulnerability report issued by Jeff “Security Guy” Jones has caught the eye of Redmond and the ire of places beyond. The report which bases its security assessment upon vulnerabilities found (not actually exploited) claims that Vista is “more secure than OS X and Linux.” In fact, the much maligned XP even crushes the competition using their calculations. Of course, it’s worth noting that Jeff is a member of Microsoft’s Security business unit which will probably sway your opinion as to the integrity of the data. Still, as incomplete as the assessment may be, it certainly appears to be a good showing for Vista considering the vast community of hackers attempting to thwart its security. Of course you know what Billy G’s probably saying right about now? Dy-no-mite JJ!

If you're looking for a specific web application to meet your needs, but you're not sure where to find it, you might want to check out SimpleSpark, a catalog of over 3000 useful online services.

For instance, I typed in "organize" and retrieved around 95 different results to help me get my stuff together. You can also browse through the entire catalog (organized by category), browse pending listings, or check out what's just been added.
