Windows Server was rated very insecure or insecure by 58 percent of the respondents, followed by 13 percent rating Linux insecure or very insecure. Sun's Solaris received the best response, with only 6 percent of respondents rating Solaris insecure. 78 percent of those taking the survey found Linux to be "secure" or "very secure."
