switching to Linux instead of upgrading to Windows XP SP2
"Take, if you will, please take it, Windows XP SP2 (Service Pack 2). I've worked a lot with SP2, and I didn't expect to see great security improvements from it. I know Windows too well to think that anything short of a complete redesign will actually make it approach Linux's levels of security.
But I did expect to see some improvement. Boy, was I wrong. Yes, some things are better, but there are also a slew of new, exciting security concerns.
