    Users are the weak link in security and Linux is inherently more secure
    than Windows, said developers polled by Evans Data in a survey released
    Tuesday.

    One in four developers think that the biggest hurdle to security is end
    users refusing to adhere to polices, a nice way to pass the buck for
    potentially-flawed code.

    open-source OS has the best innate security.
