I never meant to say the Windows was more secure than Unix/Linux. I should have ended that sentence with " than it used to be." My bad! :-)

The biggest problem with security is that you can secure anything but at some point someone has to access/use it, and that is where all the security under the sun fails. So, you mitigate it as best you can and plan for the worst case scenario.
