FW: Nice OpenBSD Artikel in the press (www.linux-magazin.de)

Didier Wiroth
Why off-topic ?

Actually I've read the article on paper, it is 5-6 pages and 99,99% is
about OpenBSD how good and secure it is.

The only linux that is mentionned in the article, is at the end where
they compare network performance between linux and obsd as firewalls.

Totally off-topic but...

They also have an article about Linux and redundant firewalls and it of
course contains how to download the source code for a specific tool from
a repository and compile it yourself and how to do it for the different
kernel versions because this particular software is not part of any
distribution yet. And this is one of the main reasons I prefer OpenBSD -
it works out of the box.
