Have you ever actually looked up the statistics on what platform is used 
for servers?

I keep hearing the same bullshit statement made over and over out few use it, no one would target it. Oddly enough that would 
mean it's perfect for stroking a hacker's ego.

When you can actually defend that statement by showing that you 
comprehend the differing philosophy in design driving Windows vs. Unix, 
and how those philosophies lend towards inherent security or insecurity, 
then you can adequately defend that statement. Until that point your 
statement, stated with no support, is just bull.
