And avoid logging in as root, that is good for security too. Part of linux security though, is the "Security through Obscurity" method.

I guess that I do not but that idea at all, but I am not exactly sure what your idea of Security through Obscurity is? In my world, that comes down to renaming a file in hopes that it will be overlooked, or using non-traditional ports in hopes that they will not be noticed. Both are bad ideas, and in the corporate world, result in loss of data.

So I am sort of curious what you are talking about?

You must be psychic. How do you know what EightPence means?
By Security through Obscurity they mean that because Linux has such a low market share compared to Windows
I don't imagine a firewall is greatly important....
Unless you are some sort of a security professional that can share with the rest of us a solid argument for not using a firewall, then the fact that you choose to not should not be taken by any one to mean that it is ok to go without one.
i don't use one

Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux
and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.

"There are about 60,000 viruses known for Windows, 40 or so for the Macintosh, about 5 for commercial Unix versions, and perhaps 40 for Linux. Most of the Windows viruses are not important, but many hundreds have caused widespread damage. Two or three of the Macintosh viruses were widespread enough to be of importance. None of the Unix or Linux viruses became widespread - most were confined to the laboratory."
