Only flatfish has ever called me a geek on COLA I think. I'm clearly
no geek as I have to ask others how to do trivial things (on Linux
they are trivial) on Windows. :-)

If the PS3 truly has Linux support from the get go then I'll have to
buy one for my son. :-)

Security is one of those funny things.  You can talk about being "more"
secure, but there's no such thing.  A vulnerability is a vulnerability, and
even one makes you just as insecure as anyone else.  Security is a binary
condition, either you are or you aren't. - Funkenbusch 1 Oct 2006
