Re: The best way to keep your system stable
Slowaris and their garbage userland tools (GNU tools own all the vendor tools) are not a recommendation I usually make but as long as you don't hit the double crotch shot of running Solaris on SPARC its an ok OS for some things.
>OK, OK, Solaris wouldn't fit on a USB stick, no matter what shoehorn you try to use.
Not only is it possible but you don't even need hacks to do it. Oracle lets you download a usb version they have made.

>As for malware, whatever has the greatest two market shares gets the bulk of the malware. Hence, *BSD would suffer more malware if they became insanely popular.
Never bought that argument totally. Yes market share will obviously affect effort to some extent but its obvious that Microsoft bolted on security much later than they should have in their code base and have been playing catch up with virtually every major OS since.
