If FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, RedHat, Debian, SuSE were packaged and
and sold in stores, how would this be any different? Oh wait, They
are packaged and sold in stores!

People find remote exploitable flaws in the aforementioned OSes during
during their pre-release, release, after-release, alpha, beta, gamma,
delta force, and nuclear reactor stages.

No one's perfect, not ISPs, not users, not software vendors, not you.
So please stop telling us about the lifestyle on planet Utopia.
