[citation][nom]Regulas[/nom]Thanks Tom's for the link. This is exactly what I have been saying all along. I would bet big money that the last several OS from Microsoft who worked with the NAS and who knows what other Federal agencies while developing have built in back doors too. I always get flamed by the little MS fan boys but the proof is in facts. I don't do illegal stuff, it's about principle. I run Linux and feel somewhat secure that big brother can not easily spy on me.If you trust the big Federal government then I say you must be working for them or just a complete idiot.[/citation]
Regulas, you have a wonderful stable and mostly secure OS. Don't delude yourself into thinking that Big Brother couldn't hack your system, insert whatever the hell they wanted, remove any trace that they were there, and then run your ass off the plank for what the put into your system.
And they could do it without breaking a sweat.
Your agruement is as weak at the arguement that OS X is more secure than Windows. It is as weak as 'I have 3 firewalls, and blah blah blah'. Straight up, if someone wants to hack my machine, they will eventually get in. It doesn't matter what OS you are running, or how many firewalls you are behind.
Ask the NSA, they know about keeping a secure system. They are also the best in the world at hacking one.
