    Interesting list.

    As expected, "XP Armageddon" hasn't occurred.

    Interesting Mac OSX is one item whereas you have Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, 2008, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows RT 8.1, Window 8 RT, Windows Vista, Windows 10 ... (and no XP as it has no "distinct" vulnerabilities at all).

    Not surprising they put the word "distinct" in quotes. The quotes probably implies "not distinct" or more likely "made up"....

    Maybe "Item 39" covers all other Windows versions.

    I thought that Windows Server 2003 (which I am running as a file sharing server) having only 29 distinct items was interesting.

    I wonder how they measure that. And it was interesting that the Apple products won (they were on top of the list).

    I looked at the link, and it appears that the closer to the top of the list you are, the more vulnerabilities you have, in other words the lower down you are, the safer you are. Though what they call a 'vulnerability' is unclear.

    XP looks like it has not been "tracked" or listed since 2014 - Number 6 here on "all time list".

    Thanks VooDoo.

    IMO, that is actually a pretty good result given:
    • How old XP is (~15 years)
    • That some more recently written software is listed as having more issues

    See I think newer features would be more at risk, especially since it takes time for newer products to mature.

    I look at some of the MOST stable Windows versions. They were less stable and secure initially, but stabilized over time. With Windows 2000 there was the ILoveYou virus that was nasty. Though uptime was still impressive on some servers with the RTM and SP1 builds, stability and better patching seemed to come by the time SP2 was around.

    Windows XP initially ran into that Melissa virus and that trojan that shutdown your system (remember that?). Windows XP did reach some level of maturity by SP2, though I find that it created a definite performance hit with the slower hardware at the time. Windows XP RTM ran great on a PIII 866 with 512 MB of RAM, whereas the same performance on SP2 really seemed to only be achievable on a P4 1.4 GHZ machine (although you could get away with 256 MB of RAM, because the processor speed increase took up the slack). However it WAS more secure.

    Windows 10 really is stable. What I don't care for are the UI and feature set, but that might improve over time. Truth is, I expect new products to require some ironing out initially.
