Slackware is for those who like recompiling the network
stuff each time a new security alert is issued.
Redhat does that in a timely fashion for it's userbase.

And on most OSses users have to wait (and buy) the next release
to get a slightly improved security >:->

Daniel, proud user of Redhat and Linux since 0.12 (yeah when
men were writing their own driver and linux was a set of 4 5"1/4
floppies, kernel sources included !)

P.S. I'm new here, is the flame mode alway on, in that case I can
probably save 2 lines each mails ...
