Why can't Linux security software be used on other OS platforms.
Posted on 2003-03-01
I am a student taking my first course in Web design but am confused as to why there are Operating System (OS) specific security software. Why is it that some OS security software do not operate on other OS's (ie., Linux, Windows, Unix, Mac). I have searched and searched but, I am even more confused. What are the differences between OS's that causes conflicts. Please help clear the spider webs out of my head.
