Microsoft Taiwan Corp is claiming superior performance over several popular
Linux distributions in the availability
of security patches, according to
in the Taipei Times.
"Citing a report released in March by Forrester Research, Chan said Microsoft is the only company that fixed all the flaws found in its platform, unlike Red Hat Inc, Debian Systems, Mandrakesoft and Suse, who are the major developers of the open-source Linux operating system.
Chan said the number of security alerts announced by Microsoft had decreased from 43 in 2002 to 38 last year, while Red Hat, Debian and others reported more alerts during the period.
