"Most Vulnerable OS"

A number of sites are reporting this CERT article as pointing out that Linux/Unix had more vulnerabilities reported in 2005 than Windows did.

The point they're missing, is how many vulnerabilities are 3rd Party apps and how many are core OS? I know this is very hard to define for Linux/Unix, since so many of the apps shipped on the install CD/DVDs are 3rd party and have always been. Unlike the various Windows OS distributions, which have very few 3rd party apps.

Just my2c, people really should think a little and do some analysis of their own...
