"The default install leaves things like FTP and Telnet ports open by default..."

I know version 5 had this issue, but I don't know if version 6 (and i am certain version 7) no longer does that. come to think of it i think version 6 left those open. 7 is more secure though. but you have a lot of very valid points.
