Windows Server thrashes Novell's Linux
So says MS-funded reliability survey
Windows is more reliable than Novell’s Linux and easier to manage, according to Microsoft-funded research carried out by Security Innovation.
The research simulated two IT departments, one running Suse Linux from Novell and one running Windows Server 2000. It found the Linux system required an eye-watering 187 patches while Windows needed just 37.
Ashim Pal, Microsoft’s chief Linux basher, told the Reg: “Windows is more reliable over time and the time to provision (getting systems up and running) is 40 per cent less than Linux.”
