Privacy, Security, Encryption "When choosing an operating system for use in your enterprise, you need to look beyond the security capabilities 'on the box' and think about how the OS really affects you over the long haul. You need to be prepared for the patching, upgrading, and maintenance issues each OS has and understand how these activities affect your security and availability."

"I'll just tell you upfront that I'm a FreeBSD zealot"

Yeah, that's all you need to know. There are other OS's out there that are more secure than BSD, Linux, and Windows, OpenVMS for one. Probably any of the good old IBM mainframe OS's as well.

The preferred model's by most OSNews visitors seem to be open sourced non-commercial products. And then they often cannot agree on which distro is better even between the BSD's and Linux flavors. But they all agree that "open is better, choice is better".
