    Yeah, I see what you mean.

    Anyway, I wasn't interested on their products.
    And their blog did give me the information I was looking for.

    (To other People: do a bit more research about them if you were going to buy anything from them)

    I am also disappointed by the fact that Ubuntu did not gave even a single warning like OSX on malware execution.:'(

    Only difference: it's on OS X and last time I checked there was no execution prevention available.
