|>I don’t think Debian will ever be as secure as OpenBSD.
Please tell me why I – as en intelligent Debian administrator – can’t make Debian just as secure as OpenBSD? (I don’t really know much about BSD, so please enlighten me).
If it all comes down to doing a little extra post-configuration with Debian, I don’t see how it qualifies as “OpenBSD being a more secure OS than Debian”.
E.g. regarding the issue with installing a new software package, and that Debian gives me no option of doing a “no run”: Heck, why not just do a ‘samba stop’ and ‘update-rc.d -f samba remove’ afterwards? How hard can it be? It only takes 5 seconds.
Same thing pretty much goes for everything else, I can imagine. If you know your Debian OS, I am sure you can make it just as secure as any BSD.
So again, please tell me why Debian will never ever be as secure as OpenBSD.
