 Subject:  critical attributes/features for 1.3 OS
 Date:  Thu, 13 Oct 2005 21:07:44 -0400
I'm putting together a list of things we want from the OS of choice
for 1.3, in no particular order of importance at this point.

* speed
* hardware compatibility (most importantly wired and wireless network
interfaces, but also anything/everything in general that's related to
* features as related to m0n0wall functionality (current and potential
future, minus things that are available and equally adequate in
anything and everything)
          - firewalling software support (which sounds like, at this
point, will be "how well does it support pf?")
          - IPsec support
          - wireless features support
* security
* image
* familiarity of OS with current contributors

I read through all of the thread (which, minus most quoted material in
gmail's "print message" output, is 65 printed pages long!) but I'm
sure I've left out some things.
