Windows communications manager Brandon LeBlanc retorted via a corporate blog post:

"Would it make any difference if the victims were running Linux or any other operating system if an attacker builds such a sophisticated profile? Not remotely. Linux, Windows, Mac, whatever – everything has weaknesses. Especially the users of those systems."

Ooh! Smackdown. I can feel their wrath from here (not to mention hear the hurt crackling in their voices). He went on to say that "even hackers admit we're doing a better job making our products more secure than anyone else," despite the Pwn2Own hacking winner claiming otherwise.

Honestly, I would be really pissed if the company I worked for took windows off my computer and forced me to use linux. Sounds to me like Google is just cutting down on some spending by not having to pay Microsoft large amounts of money.
