That's like saying condoms are unnecessary if you know how to pull - never mind, I wont elaborate. You know what I'm getting at.

Point is no matter how good the administrator is, it's the OS that has to deal with a security threat. At some point you have to let in _something_ in order for the server to be of any use at all, and if the code for that particular something has a flaw in it... THAT is what matters in the end.

In other words the OS is VASTLY more important than the administrator. A really good administrator with a shitty OS wont do a damned bit of good...
