Default Vista Security

Apparently Microsoft is not counting program specific security vulnerabilities when gauging the overall security of windows Vista.

Quote:
The Microsoft "researcher" claims that Windows Vista is exponentially
less vulnerable than many Linux distributions and Mac OS X. It may be
true that the default Vista installation has had less public
vulnerability reports, and that Linux has had many more, but this is
due to the nature of Open Source. Jeff does not include any "silently
fixed" vulnerabilities that have been patched since Vista was released
and Microsoft has not disclosed such vulnerabilities publicly.
