I wonder if an article about the habits of secure computer users would be a good article for OSNews?

They should stage a security TV competition show where the best user/box tandems in terms of efficiency (defined as usability divided by efforts) are rewarded some nice prizes.
And I'll be there with my eCS box. ;)
