They know about OpenBSD (the army, I mean) and they use it lots. Part of the decision is that some departments will be using WebObjects. They use OpenBSD in other places, never fear, and Mac's are becoming BSD-cousins, if not siblings. cg. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Ken Sent: Monday, September 20, 1999 9:45 PM To: Victor Richardson; email@example.com Subject: Re: Linux vs. NT Security contest At 08:56 PM 9/20/99 -0700, Victor Richardson wrote: > ZDnet has an open web security challenge pitting Lunux/Apache vs. NT/IIs, >first to crack, corrupt, steal from either/or both wins $1,000.

Another one of those out of the box Linux vs. custom MS Engineer tweaked NT/IIS gigs. Of course anyone who knows jack will see right through this. Unfortunately we are not the target audience. The real objective is to FUD those who don't know better. For example, I lost a big web dev contract because of that mindcraft sham when my efforts to sell an Apache/PHP3 development platform were thwarted by competing Micro-serfs who utilized this article as ammo to discredit both me and my tools. Interestingly enough, the US Army got tired of being cracked and recently ditched NT in favor of... drumroll... a Mac. Guess they never heard about OpenBSD. </rant> Ciao-- Ken http://www.y2know.org/safari Failure is not an option- it comes bundled with your Microsoft product.
