ok ok enough bickering
Agreed, the paper did seem like an attack on Slackware do to the complete misconception about Volkerding's view on security. The sites and lists have been pointed out enough in the comments. The man has appologized so lets move on.
This article was a good one. Unfortunately most people missed the point. I don't think it was intended to tell us what distribution to use, or who to boycott; rather, it was intended to tell us what we should do about security, why we need it, etc. The common quote from most web site defacers is "Security is a Myth". This is true for the most part, but if we all look at security and pay attention to it rather than sloughing it off, it doesn't have to be a myth.
Anyway, I lack sleep and I'm at work...so I hope this made sense...
