Security is like an onion, no wait, a cake or maybe parfait. I mean you
are more secure from the fact that the majority of existing malware
won't run, different security model, etc, but there is a limit. No
system is entirely secure. I mean if you or someone installs a keylogger
on your Linux box then it's going to send your keystrokes. Does that
make it a less secure operating system? Now how about a gadget?

Have you got the source code to your system's firmware?
