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. :-)
