Marketing?

This is interesting, but it also feels like Tsolkas is pushing his product. Not that he doesn't have a right to do that; but the whole thing looks just a little odd to me. And HSS doesn't seem to have much of a following; Googling it turns up this article and little else.

Also, I don't know Systrace from Adam, but considering the OpenBSD people consider it okay, I'm a bit confused by Tsolkas' dismissal of it as providing "bad security."

I'll admit I'm no security guru. But doesn't this smack a bit of scare marketing and FUD?

Edit: "Director Sales & Marketing..." Oh yeah. Duh.
