Well, I could get Windows for free, I mean I used Windows for 15 years before switching to GNU/Linux but I have never, ever paid even a dollar for windows in my life.

Anyhow, I still am poor you fucking bourgeois swine.

Yes, I'm a poor student. No, I don't believe in security through obscurity which the proprietary alternatives force down your throat.
>>
>>51572599
Out of honestly, a mixture of both security through obscurity and using well thought out implementations is probably the best way to secure your systems.

Like you said, free OS's work pretty well in regards to doing what-ever-the-fuck-you-want
>>
>>51572622
>a mixture of both [...] is probably the best way to secure your systems.
I disagree. A system's security should not rely on keeping its blueprints a secret. Everything about the system should be public, apart from the secret key you use yourself, in order to validate the security of said system. Obfuscation makes you lazy, and people will find out. Expect the enemy to know the system, regardless of obfuscation.

I wasn't referring to propriety (black box) verses open source/free/whatever-the-fuck systems.

Putting a few minor obstacles in the road (like I don't know, a firewall with ACLs?) along with some things an attacker may be unfamiliar with (possibly encrypting data and storing them in not-so-obvious locations) will make their job more painful than it'd need to be. No system is safe regardless. Those who want to get in presumably will anyway.

As I said, a mixture of both is a good thing. Using only one OR the other has obvious flaws in it.

All right, but I was in my first post. I assumed you were as well.

>Putting a few minor obstacles in the road (like I don't know, a firewall with ACLs?) along with some things an attacker may be unfamiliar with (possibly encrypting data and storing them in not-so-obvious locations) will make their job more painful than it'd need to be.
I see what you mean, but I find hiding is no security at all, it merely postpones, at best. And when found, all 'security' goes straight out the window. Cryptography would make more sense.

>No system is safe regardless. Those who want to get in presumably will anyway.
Very true, mostly a time/money issue.

>As I said, a mixture of both is a good thing. Using only one OR the other has obvious flaws in it.
Using proper crypto in the right way, there's no need for obscurity IMHO.

>>51565828
I use whatever the fuck I feel like, OP. Windows 10 for playtime, Debian to get shit done, VMs of anything else to learn. Who gives two fucks what you run?

Does it matter? You do realize this is just a giant circle jerk over "my shwang is such-and-such" when you ask questions like this. No one gives a fuck about your shwang. People use their shwang for whatever they need. Let them use it they way they like. Hell, I bet you're one of those people that likes to sneak up and put a shwang into someone without the benefit of a reach around.
