How to fix flaws in your Windows operating system

3 The solution to the rampant security flaws in WinOS and MS apps is simple: buy a Mac for home use. If you have to use Windows at work - so be it. Let your company pick up the IT costs of maintaining Windows, filtering spam and scouring for viruses.

4 Get a Mac....or better yet, Linux or a BSD. I run a network at an airport, and thankfully, we're replacing a lot of windows boxen with Linux servers next year. The constant patching has gotten beyond rediculous.
