More Lies from Bill Gates

The Microsoft chairman and “chief software architect” made a couple of comments regarding the security of Windows vis-a-vis OSX and Linux. It really goes to show that all those years away from the coding trenches really distorts a man’s sense of reality. Well, that, a few billion dollars, and surrounding yourself with yes men.The bottom line is that Windows security lapses have cost our economy billions of dollars. The preponderance of evidence is that Windows is less secure by design than Linux and other Unix-like operating systems including MacOS X.Instead of trying to bullshit his way out of this, maybe he should tell Microsoft to find and report on the various security bugs in the competitor’s operating systems. Then again, considering the coding skills over at Redmond, it might take a while.
