...if you make it easy to use, with the 'cost' of that ease of use being security, its a no-brainer.
BSD itself is less targeted because its harder to use, end of story.
I'm not saying it's vulnerabilites are equal or benign, just that if it was easier to use, and had zillions of consumers using it for online retailing and contact harvesting, you can bet there would be some vulnerabilities in it.
But since it doesen't have that task of being a mainstream-friendly OS, and an insane profit motive engulfing its deployment pattern, they can accomplish what they want. As their stocks are in something else, that serious dorks require for their dutch poop eating porn collection - and that is security.
There now you all have the answer, you're welcome
Sorry but I saw this become another Windows vs. Linux/Unix/BSD argument and had to defuse it. It's all too similar to the "whats better for making pancakes...a 9mm luger or an old set of false teeth?" ...argument I hear so often, and about as exciting...
