Umm... In fact Lindows seems to have copied its' security policies from Microsoft. Unless
things have recently changed, the default install ends up with the user running everything
as root, and root has no password anyway.
Of course, even using an unsecure Linux distro is better than Windows, since not many
worms or spyware are written for Linux yet. But I don't see why we would need to
recommend such an unsecure distro to anyone.
Now Mandrake on the other hand... There you have a distro that's easy to use and still
does it the right way.
