Apparently an older MS whitepaper that tells the benefits of UNIX over Win2k server from 2000 was leaked.
One of those benefits being security.

lol, good old microsoft choosing to stay with 2k server instead of making the software they use more stable and secure for the customer.
the more times this happens, the better it will be for apple as far as i am concerned. So keep up the good work M$

Unbelievable good find :D

Check this out:
2) Reputation for stability. Both the UNIX kernel, and the design techniques it encourages, are renowned for stability. A system of several thousand servers must run reliably and without intervention to restart failed systems. For Windows 2000, we must first prove the stability in the same environment, and we must then convince the rest of the world.

...convince the rest of the world. The writer doesn´t really seem so confident of that part. But, otherwise, M$ has experience in "convincing" people, right?
