“One way to make a non-scientific determination as to how quickly various Linux distributions publish their updates is by searching the Secunia (http://www.secunia.com/) database of advisories … In this instance, Ubuntu and Fedora received the highest scores overall, reflecting their tendency to be among the first responders for many issues.”
So, Ubuntu’s free, easy to use, looks great and it’s secure.
Congratulations to Martin Pitt and the rest of the Ubuntu security team!
