OS X, iOS, Linux were the most vulnerable OSes in 2014
The Lenovo-Superfish fiasco might have some contemplating an OS switch, but the grass isn't greener on the other side—at least not according to GFI. The security firm has published a report ranking last year's most vulnerable OSes and applications, and guess what? OS X, iOS, and Linux made the top of the list. Take a look:

Windows 7 is a distant fifth, with four times fewer total vulnerabilities than OS X. Windows 8.1 is neck and neck with Windows 7 in terms of total vulnerabilities, but it suffered from fewer "high" vulnerabilities, knocking it down to eighth place. Not bad.

1 star? These types of news that compares different Oses always gets some people butthurt. As if the numbers were randomly picked, or were an opinion.

Win, OSX, Android & iOS = #1, Linux = #1.1

But it's not a bug, it's a feature ...

More non-MS bashing probably coming from the viral-infested Microsofters themselves. Like most establishment news, I don't take such myths seriously. MS is hurting, and hurting badly because of all their viral and vulnerability crap. So they try to make other operating systems that rarely get anything, look as bad and sickly as they are. They seem to confuse "the extremely rare possibility of getting something" with "actually getting it all the time day in and day out". There's no comparison.
