      One point that is not made in all the hub bub about 2000 / 2003 security is one of use and work. To say that our incidents are down over  simillar time period from release of product a vs product b is all well and good but was products a's usage patterns the same as product b? Were as many instances of A being used as B. Knowing that a count of events is smaller in one set vs another is only valid if the sets are the same size and consist of other simillar metrics.

      That said I feel the 2003 is trending correctly vs prior releases regardless of what the number say or do not say.

      I'd like to see an interview with someone involved in the security around microsoft.com. That could be interesting. It has to be one of the most high profile targets people out there want to "get".

      I'd also love to see an overview of how many machines are running in that server-room. It has to be just awsome!

      Oh, that's an excellent idea!

      Here's the machines that compile Windows, by the way: http://www.pbase.com/image/12874250

      I'd imagine that Windows 1.0 didn't take very long to compile, but what about Windows 2003? Or, how about Longhorn?

      Strange, wouldn't be surprise if Win1.0 took longer to compile give the increase in processor speed, compiler design and parallel compilation.
