I read this article this morning and it is interesting and associated to 
the thread.

Red Hat Linux Gets Top Government Security Rating
Quote from the article

Linux developers have been working to add these "SE Linux" access 
control features into the operating system for several years now. SE 
Linux shipped as part of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and now it has been 
certified for government use, Frye said. "You now have a level of 
fine-grained control for everybody," he added. "You can set security 
based on groups or based on individuals."


Now does F7 follow the same security model or does RHEL5 have additional 
software added?  But the addition of SELinux does improve the security 
of Linux, enough to get certification out of the box.

To me this is a good reason to support Fedora over OpenSuse.

Due to the move to M$ Exchange Server,
    anything that is a priority, please phone.
