Re: [vox] On the security of RedHat....


Shall I send you my therapy bills?  >;-)

Actually, my only experience with Linux actually *is* with Red Hat. 
It's the distribution that came on the computer my wife gave me as a
wedding present.  I'd call myself a fan, but, then, I was once a
dribbling Windows fan, too.  I'm interested in trying other
distributions, especially Debian.
