    I should read some more books on security in general. I know the basics but when it comes to sophisticated attacks I don't really have a clue about the best way to protect yourself.

    Currently running pfSense as my router, based upon FreeBSD. Tried GhostBSD on a laptop a little while back but couldn't get the wireless card to connect :(

    Did you read the FreeBSD Handbook section on WiFi cards, which outlines how to enable the correct driver in the config file so that it's activated on boot?

    I did indeed. Issue came down to the Broadcom wireless card in that laptop.

    Hmmmm, thinking of it again Trident seems to still be going :) anyway I just have 2 drives one Windows 10 & one Mint. I want to use Mate as a DE, that is easy to install right? It would be nice to use a none Windows OS that has like 5ish distroes instead of 100s.
