Now there is one of the last differences between DefenderMX and a Barracuda.
The option of easy updates. When that version is out, you could almost set
cron to do weekly yum updates, and your system would stay up-to-date.

I am afraid that if I had a Defender, my PHB's might decide I don't have
enough to do!  ;-)
