Comment: Whats a computer these days? (Score 1) 310

It matters what we define as "computer". A whole generation who grew up on bootstraping Free Unix OSes and reading code from the various IBM PC magazines of the 80s literally build the INTERNET and the companies around it. It was a virtue of necessity, but a still a point to consider. Kids today are not exposed to these sorts of things without outside intervention.

You once said, "secure software only happens when all the pieces have 100% correct behavior." I was wondering if you could elaborate on this in the sense of shipping a product every 6 months and dealing with all the mess that upstream code may send your way. How much work is it integrating various "components from outside compliers" and how crucial is this process in creating a secure system?

This is utter bullshit. Do you know how easy it is to connect to a WPA2 network with # ifconfig ? Do you know how easy it is to activate a proven secure httpd, named and other unix services including deployments such as access points and firewalls. Do you really believe iptables is easier than pf? Do you really think selinux is easy? Do you jump on every bandwagon like everyone else and now have all your tweets stored on the library of congress and all your information in the hands of facebook mark "they trust me, dumbfucks" zuckerberg? As Theo says, if you want something new and shiny off the shelf, go get it, but don't come crying later from this mentality of not knowing when to say, "wait maybe this isn't the best idea." What is so "new" that OpenBSD desperately needs? And why do you think they owe it to you? Since when has embracing the most recent release made your life easier or more secure? Would you believe a recent OpenSSH makes you more secure, because OpenBSD is the first to have it, always. Would a new pf make you more secure, because OpenBSD has it, always. What about ipsec, which OpenBSD was first to implement? I can't believe you were upvoted to 5.

Everyone who knows anything about security and follows linux distros, of which mint is popular enough for it not to slip under the radar; these people should know mint doesn't have security advisories nor mailing lists nor a security "team" such as it's grandparent distro. What is canonical thinking? They must like stirring the shit up. What do they have to gain from doing this? They're already on everyone's shitlist.
