"Finally, a Linux distribution geared at easing the security-conscious minds of such self-professed paranoiacs as G. Gordon Liddy has hit the streets. Nexus developers are taking names, ranks and numbers."

"According to its makers, Nexus is a free, portable and secure Linux distribution. "Its target audience is the enterprise application, the paranoid system administrator and other areas where security is not a `nice-to-have' additional feature, but an essential requirement," claimed anonymous Nexus developers in a recent announcement."

"Unlike many currently available Linux distributions, Nexus isn't being promoted as a user-friendly proposition. "Nexus does not try to appeal to the novice user, or even be usable by him. We sacrifice `ease of use' for power and security." The company also said that its ambition fills a need in the Linux market. "The primary goal of Nexus is to create a secure Linux system. Anything else is secondary to that goal, and if necessary, will be changed.""
