    Dear Nicole,
    Is this an article or jibberish? Jibberish or a press release poorly
    cloaked as a article? What exactly do you mean by intergrated? Are you
    saying that all the major Linux distrubutions will include this as
    part of their base system install?
    Or are you saying that it works on Linux? I'm confused. I suspect you
    are too. Why did you not research the subject, if you had you would
    have found tripwire ( which has been around
    and widely used for almost 10 years.
    What about quoting experts other then the company CEO? Either you've
    been had, or need a refresher course in journlistic intergrity.
    Your friend,
