Chris you could take a dose of your own medicine for a change and
actually provide something other than invective.  

You say, or at least imply that Linux CAN'T WORK as a firewall, but also
don't explain why this is true.  I certainly don't mind a good
controversy, and perhaps what you are saying is correct, but you too could
be specific and show your work.  So far I have never known you to do this.
