Subject: Windows 2000 Professional and firewalls

I have been tasked with investigating setting up a firewall for my office.
In some of the lectures on firewalls that I have attended in the past, the
lecturer was against using Windows NT as the underlying OS of the machine
that is running the firewall software due to its security problems. Has
there been any evidence that Windows 2000 is a more secure and viable
firewall OS than Windows NT? I would prefer to use UNIX/Linux as the
underlying OS but would like to have some supporting evidence. Thanks.
