Re: red worm amusement
For the last time: I am saying that apt-get install should not immediately
start a service, and it should not install the startup links in /etc/rc?.d.
I could give a rats @$$ about what is Debian's base system. Those aren't
installed with apt-get install anyway. I could give two $#1+$ about
whether or not an OS is secure out of the box. This is not a question
about OSes, it's a question about installing packages that install
Please don't try to steer me off course, and then say I keep changing
my position. It's simply not polite, and rather silly.
