10 Hi,
11 just a bunch of quick questions from a hardened newbie:
13 1) Is there are reason to do it beside "Debian is going to do it"?
14 2) What's wrong with current approach i.e. having seperate hardened profile?
15 3) What are the benefits for an average desktop user or high-performance
16 cluster?
18 While answering that, please skip things obvious like having "more
19 secure box".
20 Cheers,
21 Kacper
