The Best of Both World in terms of Security

What I am talking about is security of the OS between Windows and Linux

1) User profiles and Controls. In Linux the highest profile is “Superuser” followed by “Root” and then “Administrator” and “User”, where folder controls is labelled in numbers for read and write access or to be “hidden”. Without “Root” or “Administrator” control you are not able to install any apps or software. This is good as it prevents Enterprise owners to tightly control it’s users access and user base, however it is not able to take ownership of documents created unlike windows. I can even define “User controls” for cross partitioning for a 2 environment platform, with different users for database, applications and software which can be easily implemented in Andriod, Linux OS and Blackberry.

2) The Windows control is even tighter as it is partition based and builded in to the OS, where you can take ownership of documents but once your partition information crashed, it is near impossible to retrieve your documents especially in NTFS but easily in FATS. The profiles in windows is even more complicated and if you do not have the expertise to correctly administer it, you will have a nightmare trying to use security properly. It is even worse for domain users especially with Active Directory.

3) I will not use Domain services for the Next Gen Internet, so Microsoft Security services with Active Directory has no use for me, it will be another challenge for Linux developers to implement security for the ownership of documents based on numeric Linux partitions, but not impossible, anyone wants to try?
