    My point was that Linux *isn't* secure. Not out of the box, anyways.
    *No* operating system (that's connected to a network) is. I've been
    following some MS bashers that spout crap like "I'm switching to
    Linux" in some of the MS security groups. If they can't manage
    WindowsUpdate, I'd love to see them try to keep any other OS patched.

    I agree Windows does have it's flaws, but who among us can write 100%
    flawless code? And while it does have it's flaws, Microsoft provides
    us with an easy way to get patched... WindowsUpdate can even do it
    automagically for you! Granted, this applies mostly to home users...
    I'd never randomly apply patches to my production servers.

    I agree with you that linux will become a bigger target as the
    userbase increases. No one OS will rule them all.. I use different
    flavors of Linux.. I use different flavors of Windows... I use
    AmigaOS.. I've even been known to use AIX, BSD, and MacOS (not by
    choice)... the point is each has it's strengths and weaknesses... is a
    boxed wrench better than an open-end one? Depends on the job you need
    to do.

    I feel better... really. I should pick a random post each day and

    Now... I need to either get back to debugging... or help the wife
    houseclean. Suddenly reading over 3 reams of printed source code
    doesn't seem so bad..

    Take her... please. Oh, the 4 kids and dog have to go with her. Maybe
    I can get some work done before you realize the mistake you've made
    and bring 'em all back.

    No it has it's holes which are patched quickly with out rebooting, but it
    is smart enough not to make email attachments or any downloads executable.
