    Thanks. The less noobs like yourself that use it, the less of a target the OS will be. I've been happily running internet facing stuff on FreeBSD since 2001, and it's been a pleasant change from the chaos that is Linux development and distribution upgrade.

    Hmmm, that sounds the the Bill Gates theory of OS vulnerability. Popular OSs get broken into not because they are vulnerable but just because they are popular.

    I would have thought someone using FreeBSD would have a more enlightened understanding of security,
    and what makes one OS a target and another a brick wall.

The herd instinct among economists makes sheep look like independent thinkers.
