    It makes about as much sense as comparing the security bug counts of an 
    operating system distribution (Microsoft Windows) with that of a complete 
    system environment including not just the base operating system but various 
    end-user applications, programming environments, network clients and 
    services, etc. (Linux), i.e., none whatsoever. 
    
    Which was the point of the original quotation.
