	Somebody asked me about Linux vs BSD re sysadmin security,
	and my thinking was (and is) that I'd rather have a security
	wizard+Linux than a slouch using OpenBSD.  Dan, can you
	speak to any advantage the Open has over FreeBSD?

	Yes.  I'd like the strengths of a FreeBSD kernel with a 
	GNU/Debian userland.  I have no ``religious'' thoughts 
	here; but IMHO, the GNU stuff is simply better done 
	on whole.  ...As people know, of course, a significant
	part of both Linux and BSD  *is* BSD.  :-)
