Guys did you read this?? The National Security Agency (NSA) is advising Windows XP users to upgrade to either Windows Vista or Windows 7 and recommends to choose 64-bit version of windows. Surprisingly, Linux is not mentioned in this document. Here is the advice of NSA: http://www.nsa.gov/ia/_files/factsheets/Best_Practices_Datasheets.pdf Now a days Windows Vista and Windows 7 are used by 35% of users all over the world, Windows XP occupies 53% of market share. Windows XP is a decade-old operating system.

Of all the many winning advantages Linux has in its favor, security is surely one of the more widely known examples. Why else, indeed,would we see security experts in mainstream publications recommending it over Windows for online banking purposes?
