I started to once but never got around to finishing it and messing with it. That was long ago as well. Hmmm.. I might download again and mess around with it.

it looks like they dont have the source or a patch for it , sounds suspicous seeing that linux might be more secure then theyd like it to be (could have backdoors so tehy can spy on european coperations even easyer

Its still GPL and they release the code, so anyone could clearly see for themselves if they made any backdoors, etc. So I doubt they would do that and easily get caught.. :rolleyes:

If we told you, we would have to make it look like you killed yourself!

<LOL>
NOT serious

Some of the enhancements are making their way into mainstream Linux now.
Fedora is going to include a lot of it in "core2"
