So for all you paranoid types that afraid to use Windows because you think they are spying on you. Did you know SELinux was developed by the NSA? www.nsa.gov...

Have fun sleeping at night kiddos knowing that your free OS had deep government spying hooks built in.

There are numerous versions of Linux, developed by unique teams, for unique applications.

"It is not a Linux distribution, but rather a set of kernel modifications and user-space tools that can be added to various Linux distributions."

Linux is open source.
If something fishy was in the code wouldn't we be able to find it?
Ive been looking for a secure linux but it kind of worries me.

This is actually old news, but most people probably don't know about it. It really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone though. S&F.

What do you mean "secure" Linux? It does not matter what OS you get, it will only be as secure as your actions.

SELinux is open source, it has been gone through with a fine tooth comb many times.
You can view the code yourself here

maybe a $5 CPM, I'm sure SO could twist someone's arm to get a rate like that, so about 2 cents?
Only if they were unique for what ad showed at that time ofc
