I would have more faith in Solaris. On an acadmeic network, no firewalls,
we had user workstations that pretty much lived on their own and at the
mercy of their users. One day, one of the AI profs installed RedHat after
most of us had left the computing dept...we heard that someone hacked into
said linux box and sniffed the entire dept. passwords. 

perhaps Linux gives people a sense of adventure or something, but Solaris
in the last few years has become quite good at running well in spite of
the chimps at the keyboard.

I have a farm of suns, if you want to make a benchmark, I'll be very
interested to run and compare the results.
