Win98 More Secure? Dont think so.

I was standing in line for lunch at the company cafeteria when someone commented to me that their Windows 98 system was more secure than their Windows 2000 system because it required less patching at Windows Update.
I’m not all that sure that number of patches is really a reliable metric for the security of a computer. Windows 98 was not designed with security in mind. There is just so much that you can do with it security wise. There is one patch for Windows 98. Its comes on a CD labeled Windows XP. I’m not sure if Windows 98 is even supported anymore.
