The promoters of the CanSecWest security research conference want to add Linux and Vista to its now famous Mac hacking contest. The idea is to give the contestants more variety.
Last year, show organizers invited attendees to hack into a Macintosh laptop, with the successful hacker winning the computer and a cash prize. But this year they're talking about giving attendees three targets to choose from. "We're thinking of having a contest where we have Vista and OS X and Linux... and see which one goes first."
