False reasoning - See "Security Report: Windows vs Linux" at
Apache is the most used web server (68%, according to a recent Netcraft survey), but Microsoft IIS is the most attacked, because it's closed, intentionally interdependant on other Microsoft software, and easy to attack.
I agree that User Education is very important, but educating users to keep they information in formats they don't have to rent from Microsoft is part of that education, IMHO.
