A couple of things that I’m a bit non-plussed by:

  • I roll my eyes at the decision to have /bin/sh not be bash. It’s not like it was hard to update my shebangs, or to figure out what the problem was with my scripts, but I’m not sure what I’ve gained by doing so.
  • Either I’m blind, or there’s no graphical firewall configuration tool; I have verified that there is no firewall in place. I’m behind a router doing NAT that only forwards SSH, so I’m not going to brush off my l33t iptables skillz, and of course it’s inconceivable that Linux could every have any security holes or that I could every inadvertently run a service in an insecure fashion. But really, isn’t a firewall just basic common sense these days?
