I, like you, use Linux but acknowledge that it's not perfect. However, I
take exception to your statement. When a Linux driven site gets hacked, it
doesn't mean there is a problem with Linux. It _might_ just mean it wasn't
properly setup by a professional. Yes, there are those that claim Superman
could only wish he was as bulletproof, but let's get real. I'm sure many
could claim similar things about when Windows sites get hacked, but with so
many major security flaws found and mostly unfixed for an unacceptable
amount of time, it leaves one to wonder.

Not only was it bug infested when I tried it, it was downright
ssssssslllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwww.... WTF is Novell doing? I
knew it was a good idea for me to leave Suse when Novell entered the
picture... I've discovered smaller distros (in market size) that are
typically much better than the corporate distros. I prefer PCLinuxOS, and I
haven't a single complaint about it.

Then kill his posts. The fact is, with '[News]' preceding his posts, you can
just list them alphabetically and skip right past them. Or just killfile
them. Whatever you like...

You've just declared yourself a troll.
