It still happens very rarely. There will always be security breeches in
any OS but in Linux they are exceedingly uncommon. I'm not sure if this
is because linux is inherently more secure or there is a lack of
programs which exploit weaknesses, but it is indisputable that linux is
a more secure alternative to MS windows.

Please do not reignite this debate. As somebody who participated in it,
I don't want to see it restart. People were starting to become
