With the recent hacking of Sony Entertainment and my own attack, would you consider moving off of Microsoft Windows technology to mitigate risk in a live trading systems?

This is a consideration for input ONLY

I am no Linux admin expert but I saw a video on this public/private key video tutorial to access remote servers. It makes me think is this something I should be considering especially when you enter into a world of live trading systems with money?? It was recently asked if Wall St should be concerned about topics like this. It is a very big when it personally happens to you. If I stick with Matlab for trading ideas, I could still extend the scripts to C/C++ or Java still.

Alternative technologies would of course include Apple Mac but seriously, is it really that much different in terms of risk reduction?

Let me know.

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out.
