That's the problem, a Windows server is
likely to be a little less
Doubtful. A legal copy of Windows (so you can get the updates) can be
secured as well as Linux, at least assuming the administrator is
equally skilled in managing both. That's not a very good rationale
against using it.
A lot more virus/worm/h4xx authors focus on Windows platforms than on
Linux/Solaris. And there are a lot more remotely exploitable errors to
gain root access for Windows than for Linux. Another point is thatin
Linux you just shut down the vulnerable service, while some
rootexploits for Windows affect core components.
