Win2K more secure than Linux

Yes, that's right. If you install Windows 2000, then download and install Internet Explorer 5 and the IE5 128-bit encryption pack, then absolutely no one will be able to log on to your machine. Why not? Check this:

Technically speaking what has happened is that two older NT dynamic link libraries, rsaenh.dll and schannel.dll, have replaced the Windows 2000 version. Windows 2000 log-in sequence simply won't work with these older files in place.
The fix, as with so many problems, is to reinstall Windows. That, my friends, is true security. Let's see those upstart open-sourcers try to beat Redmond on this one.
