    Default Windows 7 Infection Rates 5 Times Lower Than XP



    We knew that Windows XP was holding back Microsoft’s ability to innovate on the security of its operating systems, but just how much? Well according to new data released in the company’s annual Security Intelligence Report, infection rates for Windows 7 are five times lower than a fully patched machine running Windows XP SP3. Windows Vista faired significantly better, however infection rates were still almost double that of a comparable Windows 7 based PC.

    Wowow, then using Se7en x64 ain't bad at this area.
