I couldn't really, could it? There's only half a dozen copies in use. Most
people who try it think "This is free, and it's still a rip off!!", and go
back to XP.

Security through obscurity, they call it.

Where is UDungTu used the most? In developing 3rd world world nations.

Who uses it most? Pimply faced geeks.

Why do people use it? Because it is free and they don't have the money to
buy a real operating system.

Now, do you think that anyone who is trying to make serious money from
computer crime is going to give an effort to try to compromise UDungTu
(linux)? Do you think they are interested in the last 25 cents that these
people have?

One of many for an OS that is supposed to be free of any vulnerability.

I also use Linux Red Hat and it has as many if not more security problems as does MS

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzt! Wrong! We took a survey on the Ubuntu newsgroup and
most users were over 50 with a good percentage over 60 and some over 70.
And guess what, most are not geeks and none of them have pimples.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzt! Wrong! People use it because it's easy to use and
compared to Windows, it's bullet proof in regards to being compromised
by malware.

MS doesn't patch anyone's computer. So far, nine million people didn't
bother to patch. With Ubuntu they would have had the orange icon appear
which can't be overlooked.

And a bright orange icon appears that NO ONE can miss for Ubuntu updates
and it doesn't just update Ubuntu, it updates *everything* that's
installed from the repositories.

All OSes have vulnerabilities. Ubuntu is much quicker put out patches
and makes it much easier to install them.
