No need, especially as he's not here to defend himself, atleast he
offered info to backup his statements even if he didn't try to prove
p.s. It wasn't Theo that said anything about the malloc.conf flag for
clearing memory on free instead of re-use, possibly being less secure.
I'm no troll, though I may hijack a thread a little too often, sorry. I
can understand though don't agree with the tendency of Linux bashing
on the OpenBSD list as they're license/ideals mean they can't use GPLd
code and they have to deal with porting and other issues, of course some
of those ports wouldn't exist or be as good without Linux. I don't
understand the sensitivity to mentioning OpenBSD or Theo by the
minority here as Linux is free to and does use their code.
