Also when something is open source it's code is analyzed more carefully allowing exploits to be found earlier.

Closer to 58%

Although i agree, apache is really great.

Gibbs wrote:This also goes against the "more people use Windows = more attacks". Theres more attacks on Linux/BSD web servers then there are Windows yet Windows still lacks in security.


Because there are more linux web servers. The opposite is true for the pc (personal comp), more attacks on windows but linux is still more secure.

Nothing is. ;)

This statement is over blown -although there are people who would agree with it - especially the the last statement. :)
