ubuntu

recently there was a security issue that was found in the breezy badger release. there was an ability to see the roots log on and password. but only a few hours after the post the problem was fixed. there in lies the reason i am writing this post. it only took a matter of hours for them to fix the problem, the response time was amazing. it would be nice if other software developers would be that responsive. especially if it where microsoft. they have had many of the same security holes go month's before they finally release a patch for the flaw. a prime example is the many holes that are still present in internet explorer. i guess thats why i started to learn the way of the nix. although there are reports that vista is more secure and blah blah blah. perhaps its because this time they are starting from the ground up. only time will tell.
