Re: Does Microsoft compare
On my Windows box I'm always having to remove malicious adware bundled with other legitimate downloads & I've noticed strange things with my keyboard - I see that you are experiencing the same - where all of a sudden, I never type in any vowels.  I am sure that you know how to spell/type in the word compare.  Yet, I bet that you have had to retype vowels in much of your typing.  No one has mentioned that yet.  On my old Linux boxes, I have way less trouble but I only use them in a more limited way.

Re: Does Microsoft compare
There must be surveys that compare the the major Oses..There certainly is no shortage of atttack data. (The shortage is in effective solutions to the solutions.)

Re: Does Microsoft compare
You are correct, Marilyn. Microsoft's SIR reports are all based on Windows threats and infections, and that's always Microsoft's focus in those reports.
