I absolutely agree with "How you implement security",but straight out of the box,fresh install of Linux vs. Windows XP ... Windows loses. You have to add a firewall,you have to add antivirus,you have to add spyware removing programs. The simple fact is the Linux community contributes to the OS being secure,whereas the MS crowd contributes to virii,spyware,trojan horse programs and other nastiness.Let us not forget lsass and DCOM. So which one is superior in "overall" security.....
Still in my own experiences with both Linux and Windows operating system testing, it's more about HOW YOU IMPLEMENT security -- rather than whether one is superior overall in security. Either OS can be implemented in a secure or non-secure fashion.
Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux
and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.
