I was busy.
Happy Parsi New Year.
JTD replied whose reply I intepret as follows that Windows (am I
correct ---- does not have a secure kernel like UNIX)---- then how is
Windows security done.
Actually JTD's answer meant that the kernel and user space memory
allocation are well defined in linux and not so much in windows
this means that user run programs are less likely to affect a system's
security in linux than it is in windows (correct me if I am wrong)
Now, for all over Mumbai/INDIA, WIFI can we say that
we have to have a
secure kernel ---- for banks can one advocate a "develop new
applications / enhancements over LINUX development tool with Windows
running on top of LINUX using the emulator VIRTUALBOX which is open
what is the need for windows if an equivalent program can be made
available in linux, sometimes even "windows programs" run glitch free in
linux using WINE
Now the key issue is that has anyone taken a software
project of say
one year and shown it is cheaper to develop using Windows v/s LINUX
for the "easy to use touted set of Windows tool v/s which tool set to
use of LINUX".
the issue with such a study is that the people concerned are generally
reluctant to move to a new platform, given that, I can vouch for the
usablity of linux with a personal example, my dad has been bed ridden
since 2003 and internet is one of the few links that keeps him in touch
with the outside, he was just as new to windows as he was to linux thus
making him one of the best judges for such a comparison, well he loves
to work in linux as much as possible and wonders, why everyone still
sticks to windoze.
