Last week on Slashdot you saw a (Microsoft-funded) research
on Windows vs. (Novell) Linux reliability by Dr.Herbert
. Novell disagreed
with the study's conclusions
. So did most Slashdot readers.
Thompson's work been mentioned on Slashdot before, especially his
script that could change electronic voting machine results
and his novel, The
Mezonic Agenda: Hacking the Presidency
. He's a real,
genuine-article computer security expert (and regular Slashdot reader)
who is happy to put on his flame-resistant
and discuss his Microsoft vs. Linux study with you. So
ask whatever you like, one question per post. We'll send him 10 of the highest-moderated questions and publish his
answers next Monday. He'll jump into the discussion then, which ought
to make it rather lively.
