Network Nazism

I like scanning OreillyNet every once in awhile since some of their articles are quite interesting. And some of the OS X stuff they post on is just wild. Too bad I don’t live in a Mac-rich environment to try our some of that stuff. Ah well.
Anyways I was running across a rant on Windows and Viruses on this post when I came across something that really bugged me….

For one, her school recently reconfigured its firewall to insist that any client connecting to the Internet be running McAffee. I’m not sure how that’s done, nor whether there’s a way around it for non-Windows users.

Talk about Network Nazi-ism. I understand the pain of trying to have a locked down network and preventing lots of pain however forcing people to have something that is locked onto >1
