I feel it in my heart. What else can I say to sound serious?

Flaming doesn't go me well, so I will try. If I have security in my mind,
I would ask for openvms or openbsd. I use freebsd as my second skin, since
it is secure almost as openbsd and simple as reading mind. I could add
all kind of measures that harden it to Batman vehicle. It has source and
binary option to update. Flags could be set to not allow any changing
of files. You could decide to get aside resources to avoid dod. Etc, since
I don't know everything about. Linux in general can similar, but I don't
see it on my 770. And I should not, for it is a little dude. I would just
ask for iptables, nothing more. I don't want to argue is it useful or not.
Believe me with your life.
