    While you're at it, start a debate on preferred editor, shell, scripting language, and to top it off, Mac vs. PC (g)

    Seriously, Firewalls get as religious a following behind them as any of the other Computer Debates/Wars.

    My **PERSONAL** preference is to go with a firmware-based box, as opposed to a software-based box. Harder to hack, harder to exploit. For that alone, I'd say the NetScreen. I've got experience with SonicWall products as well, and for that reason, do NOT recommend their firmware based products. . .
