PGP - rarely use it and, at worst, someone could forge my messages. Like that
wasn't possible with unencrypted mail...
As for Ubuntu, shame on Connonical. It only affect Bandger 5.10 and is not a
Linux issue. It also puts in jeopardy machines on which multiple user
accounts already exist. So a user could, in principle, gain administrator

/var/log/installer/cdebconf/questions.dat ). We all know that using a
floppy, anyone can do this in Windows. *grin*
