Every tool has its use and every operating system has its role. Selecting an operating system is a critical decision which can effect the capabilities and security posture of a network for years to come. The Myth of the Secure OS addresses the strengths and weaknesses of the major operating systems, aligning them with common capabilities or computing needs. The goal of this book is not to sway towards one OS or another, but to emphasize that each OS has its own Yin and its own Yang.
