The fine folks at RISE Security have purchased a Linux-based ASUS Eee PC and literally rooted it out of the box (using Metasploit, of course). Considering how much criticism other PC vendors have received for out-of-the-box security, its a wonder that a similar outcry has not been heard for Linux-based products. The last line of the RISE article really sums it up: "Easy to learn, Easy to work, Easy to root."
