...it would still probably be less than windows though because you need to elevate privileges on Linux and we all know most people run with admin privileges on windows.
That's not related to Linux vs. NTKernel (the Windows Kernel.) They are essentially identical there. You are seeing "common approaches from the userbase" and perceiving that behaviour as being caused by the kernel code, but it is not.
Run Windows uses on a Linux-based OS and they will behave the same as they always did. Put Linux-based OS users on Windows and they are secure. It's the userbase, not the product, that has that effect.
Windows is just as much "need elevated privileges to run" as any highly secure Linux distro, but Windows end users are way more likely to work around that, and be accepting of third party products that demand it.
Port the Windows desktop to Linux, literally nothing will change, because those users will come along with it.
I suppose I was meaning the userbase more then the actual kernel in that statement.
One thing that I am finding with Edge is that often when I am trying to type something into the address bar and hesitate before finishing it freaks out and the address bar disappears so that I have to grab the mouse, open it again and start typing over again. Their desire to have that weird, jumping around address bar is a major negative. It is confusing and it makes it slow.
Piggy backing on one of the other threads. If it was an insider, how do you think the FTC would have grounds to sue? I don't think there is a way to stop something like this unless no employees have access to the data.
Be kind of hard for the FTC to sue a Canadian company.
Haha good point. It was just a hypothetical about this type of situation.
