The REST of the story: Mac versus Windows vulnerability stats for 2007

Mike posted a story earlier in the week that explored vulnerabilities in Apple's OS X and Microsoft's Vista & XP. The story is causing quite a stir in the online communities (i.e. nerds like me) that follow such things.

The point of the story was simple: Mac had 243 flaws and both flavors of Windows had a combined total of 44.

Problem is, George Ou, the author of the piece, obviously failed his college statistics class.

After digging into the numbers that George provided some big problems start to appear. For starters, 65 of the vulnerabilities aren't even OS X problems, they're either duplicates or third-party software. Had George held Windows to that standard, we would clearly see a different picture.

And that's just the start. Roughly Drafted has put together a rather enlightening article debunking the story.

Sorry folks, this myth has been busted.

Read the full story here.
