Frustration Defined

I understand that complexity is the enemy of security, and hence large corporations, who have complex chains of command, are necessarily going to be less secure (ahem...without dedicating tremendous resources and energy into making security a design feature and not an afterthought...such a place, however, is a rare beast indeed).

News 150318
I have made a perfect (as I think) Linux ARM system for Raspberry Pi 2. I call it RaspEX. It is based on Debian Jessie (upcoming Debian 8), Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (upcoming Ubuntu 15.04) and Linaro (Open Source software for ARM SoCs).
