Slightly off topic, but--

For the first time in my professional life, I've had Linux boxes 
hacked/virused this year, and in fact _twice_.  True, we were doing a lousy 
job keeping them patched, and we left a hole in our firewall, and some 
other mistakes, but it was disturbing to me nonetheless.

I generally tell non-techies that Linux is basically immune to attack 
(which I knew was nonesense, but relatively speaking...).  The reason we 
were so lassaiz faire about the boxes is because of a long history of their 
running without incident.
