a solid OS as a basis is needed. To come back on topic, I think PC-BSD is such a system.

Good point. I also agree FreeBSD is a solid foundation to build on. Similar is debian in case of Ubuntu. Although a lot of work still has to be done.

The "Budenzauber" applications ("shiny firewall imitation") I mentioned on another topic. Good that most of this crap doesn't run on PC-BSD. :-)

To be frankly i think the firewall GUI in PCBSD is such a "budenzauber". I would like to see pf blocking all incoming connections by default. Yet tcp{22,445, 139} ports are open. I expected to see all ports to be filtered. Feel free to see it at
