    How safe is accessing internet with LINUX..
    in case of windows i have win2k and i am limiting my access to internet from Windows (i am mostly doing in LINUX) but still i got thr firewal(kerio2X)l Ez latest and AVG 7 and TDS... and spywareblaster,spybot and adaware for security(i have other installations ready like NAV,KAV,Trojan Hunter, Trojan Remover but not installing all at once.. but keeping it clean and nice and i think secured)

    if your linux internal firewall system and kernel are configured correctly I would say that it's the most secure piece of software built yet !

    Definitely!!!! With all due respect to you FluxGFX, I would far rather rely on the security of OpenBSD then Linux. However, OpenBSD has less of the bells and whistles then Linux, so for most people it is a less viable alternative as a desktop OS. Still, as a server or firewall it is very secure and stable.

    Regards,

    Dan
