    The single biggest challenge in computer security at the present time is how to
    build *and deploy* servers that stay reasonably secure even when run by the
    average wave-a-dead-chicken sysadmin, and desktop-class boxes that can survive
    the best attempts of Joe Sixpack's "Ooh shiny" reflex, and Joe's kid's attempts
    to evade the nannyware that Joe had somebody install.

    (If you know how to build such things, don't bother replying. If you have
    actual field experience on getting significant percents of Joe Sixpacks to
    switch, I need to buy you a beer or something.. ;)
