Since I am no computer pro this is very important for me to be
able to run a UN*X system.

I found the highest and only security issue being myself, trying
things before reading the manuals and documentations :-)
But in the last 4 or 5 years I never succeded in completely

of this list (thanks, by the way).

Thus I can say FreeBSD is a highly reliable and stable operating
