Microsoft Report Claims Vista Has the Fewest Flaws

Posted by wholeenchilada on January 25, 2008

I saw this a post at slashdot and had to share – Microsoft Says Vista Has the Fewest Flaws:

“Microsoft issued a year-one security report on its Windows Vista operating system today, and it turns out Vista logged less than half the vulnerabilities than Windows XP did in its first year. According to the new Microsoft report, Vista also had fewer vulnerabilities in its first year than other OSes — including Red Hat rhel4ws, Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, and Apple Mac OS X 10.4 — did in their first years.”

Now the question is whether the lack of adoption of Vista affects these numbers. If consumers and businesses aren’t moving to Vista (Windows Vista labeled the #1 most disappointing product of 2007), and considering the growing XP love-fest (there’s even a Save XP campaign online!), one would think the number of issues logged during first year would be less than earlier Microsoft operating systems. I don’t know enough about Red Hat, Ubuntu and Mac OS’s to comment on them, but I’m still not sure about the claim that “Vista has the fewest flaws”. Less flaws logged? Possible. Less overall flaws, kinda doubtful.
