Slightly paranoid aren't we? It reminds me of an article I read several years ago in which the author claimed that all "Virus" and "Malware/Trojans" were being written by Linux users in an attempt to discredit Microsoft and then start charging for the use of their software in a fashion consistent with Microsoft. He went on to claim that 'open-sore' authors would reap windfall profits. Of course, like you, he offered no concrete evidence, just idle speculation. In any case, due to the multitude of flavors of *.nix and Windows machines, in addition to the thousands of possible configurations, systems, etc., getting a truly meaningful comparison would be a monumental undertaking. In any event, it would be obsolete before you ever finished it. -- Jerry [EMAIL PROTECTED] Fortune's Office Door Sign of the Week: Incorrigible punster -- Do not incorrige.
