Now, that's a decent argument.


(Still, I'm not that worried about someone exploiting my laptop.
When you port-scan it, for example, nothing is open. And, all that
stuff I don't need in the kernel has come in handy. I really like
the fact that when I plug in a piece of equipment I've never used
before, Debian usually recognizes it.)

A choice between one man and a shovel, or a dozen men with teaspoons
is clear to me, and I'm sure it is clear to you also.
