Red Hat Summit (inspirational) keynote: You are here

,----[ Quote ]
| Szulik told the audience that the discussion in the
| Linux and open source communities needed to undergo a
| shift in this age of social unrest from kernel-exclusive
| fare into the migration of data. "Start thinking about
| creating access to public networks," he said.


Talking security with Red Hat's Mark Cox

,----[ Quote ]
| "Aside from Web browser flaws there are not actually that many
| remote vulnerabilities these days for attackers to write exploits
| for. A default installation of Enterprise Linux 4 AS, for example,
| was vulnerable to only three critical security issues in its first
| two years."



How secure are Linux, Window and Mac OS?

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall it looks like the Linux kernel turns out to be the most
| secure system. Not only does it have virtually no security holes
| that lead to system access, it's also very resilient to remote
| attacks, two areas where both Windows and Mac OS X aren't doing
| very well.
