System Calls

I’m not generally one to wade into the OS religious wars. I use all of the top 3 major OSes on a daily basis and all of them have benefits and drawbacks. However, these pictures comparing the system calls for a webpage request to Linux/Apache and Windows/IIS are quite eye opening. The opportunity for security breaches in overly complex systems is obvious and, in this case, Windows/IIS certainly demonstrates a level of complexity that just seems unnecessary. Conclude what you will.
