I'm saying the opposite.
It's great they couldn't hack it, but as you say there're loads of
machines operated by noobs, so the fact of not being able to hack that
machine in the contest doesn't mean that the noobs can feel safer
because they run a Linux distro in their servers.
Ah. Then we can agree. Frankly, I blame Microsoft and all the geeks
who seem to feel for being geeks and want to dumb everything down.
