On the other hand, I do understand your point that the machine could
shipped a bit more secure. It should at least have two or three basic
configurations: not secure, pretty secure, and really secure.

I don't think there should be a choice, it just confuses people. A
pretty secure configuration is almost always a good starting point, and
something that IBM should start to enforce sooner rather than later.

Not my customers, in general, because I rail against things like ODBC
FTP access. That doesn't stop them, but it's not out of ignorance.

It's very good when you have that sort of influence. I sure don't.

Because as a consultant it's your job to raise those concerns.

You have a really interesting perspective on my job.

I'm just a lowly technician doing grunt work and having absolutely
nothing to say in any decision whatsoever.
