It was actually just a quick spark that came and went in a flash.

Thanks for your opinions regarding security in Linux systems...and why the
methods vary depending upon what is being done with the OS in the fist
place. When delving into Linux for the first time (early this year), I was
suprised and not a little disappointed to learn that most of the popular
distros were installed with a poor level of security, just like Windoze.
My original impression was that and version of Linux would be very secure
out of the box.

Linux: the people's OS.
A billion communists can't be wrong!
