Similar to OpenBSD (Only 1 remote security hole in the default install in almost 9 years!) in that it keeps everything shut off by default.. That way.. you enable the things you need to enable.. when you need them, so you don't have a bunch of unknown, historically insecure services running by default.. as does something like.. oh.. redhat??

Use Debian sarge. Download from here:
Small iso, only the base system, then you can apt-get anything you wish.
Mine is incredibly reliable and fast in a k6-2 with 64mb.
As said before, the new installer is really easy.

I'm a newbee at Linux so I'm not sure what makes it more secure than other distros. ;-)
When I first installed Trustix, I was a "newbee." I thought swup updating with was nice. Now I like apt-get (as found on Fedora, Debian, et. al.).

I'm using Trustix with XAMPP for Linux as a very easy usable web server and ftp package.
