Linpus Lite 1.6 desktop edition screenshot preview

http://www.linuxbsdos.com

The last edition of Linpus Lite that was reviewed on this website, was Linpus Lite 1.4, and that was in September 2010 (see Linpus Lite 1.4 review). That edition was good in some ways, bad in others, but in general, was usable, though it lacked basic security features that I expected to see in a modern Linux distribution.

Why your computer needs a firewall enabled

http://www.linuxbsdos.com

Why is it even necessary to convince anybody that they need a firewall enabled on their Internet-facing computer – desktop or server?
