Not quite as much as all that. I mean I am satisfied that
Debian is performing its main, and most important goal and reason
for being: providing a stable operating environment for my cluster of
machines, which are slowly converting to running mandatory access
As long as the reason of being for debian is satisfied, I
don't see any reasons to invest in smart cards.
A large number of installed systems work by fiat. That is, they work
by being declared to work. Anatol Holt
