Bill Gates was too busy having tea with the Queen while back at home his always trusty Windows OS was being attacked yet again by a fast spreading worm. He took a moment to comment on the perceived security of Linux and OS X.
Noting the large number of major virus epidemics during the past two years, Gates said that in some ways, “hackers are good for maturation” of the platform, because they have forced the company to develop new inspection techniques for the code.
More and more, Bill reminds me of the Iraqi stooge who claimed Iraq was winning the war when you could practically hear the bombs dropping during his press conferences. Windows has security issues and releasing patches as a way to deal with these problems will eventually catch up with Microsoft.
