You know, having made a few NTexploit lists in the past, I wanted to
make the point the M$ was less secure.  Unfortunately the facts were
against me.

Two IIS 6.0 vulnerabilities reported from 2003-2006 
Twenty-eight Apache 2.0 vulnerabilities reported from 2003-2006

Scroll down a bit, and you'll discover a nice pie chart of how critical
they were - 50% of the IIS were 'Moderate', while only 33% of the Apache were.
You can make statistics lie any way you want. ;)

Also, selecting IIS/Apache, which is installed on few Windows or Linux boxes
by default, doesn't tell you anything regarding the underlying security. You
could as well chosen Microsoft Office and OpenOffice and made the same claim.
