Got you all beat with my newest and most beloved desktop, namely a dual G5
Mac running Panther OSX.  One of, if not THE most secure *NIX kernels, BSD,
known for having the fewest vulns, combined with THE most awesome gui

Toss in nice features like an auto patcher that drops a prominant dialogue
in the middle of your screen the moment it detects a patch, and the ability
to have a terminal session where you can execute all the *NIX commands and
scripts you're used to, and I have everything in a desktop I've always

In addition to be blazingly fast, and an OS that has had one virus in 5
years, the aluminum box looks really cool.  I'm in love.

If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked.
What's more, you deserve to be hacked.
