I do IT. Working for a MIL contractor, I became a "real boy" started using PUIAS(Princeton LINUX - because it was closest to RHEL). I was able to do everything that I use to do in Windows, because I ran Windows 7 VBOX as a sub host. LINUX was just the protected wrapper, I could snapshot the WIN VM so If I felt any intrusion or anomaly I could roll back. The trick is to separate your data, and have network backups, while knowing what had to live where to function. Once you did that, you had a more powerful operating system without the direct access to kernel worries and praying zero day vulnerability would make you toast. ---jmtc
