First, I'd like to thank you for the efforts you make in promoting the use of free software as an alternative to proprietary software.
Next, I'd like to point out some things related to your site. I'm facing a situation in which I need to prove that Linux is really better, not in terms of freedom, but in terms of numbers. I haven't been successful trying to find reliable information on the Internet. I hope you can help. I'm convinced that by adding links to reliable web sites, your web site will be much more successful in convincing people to use Linux. 

In summary, how to prove that:

- Linux does not suffer from virus and spyware problems like Windows does. 
- Linux itself rarely fails complete
- Linux is designed to be stable, safe and secure. 

My goal is not to bother you, but to give ideas so that your web site can be much more convincing. I've been asked to prove that Linux is better at my university, because I'm implementing an intranet in a computer that already has a license for windows server (2000, although they're about to get 2008). I'd really appreciate it if you can somehow provide me with links to websites that can prove that facts you state.
Thank you for your time.
