    Default Most secure OS?

    I'm looking for something that will generally be secure right out of the box. What are some good suggestions? OpenBSD?

    Paper and Pencil. Then burn them both when you are done. but if you're not into that, probably the best thing is Vista right now for security. Top notch performance, fast and easy updates, locked down security.

    Dos 6.22, since it cannot connect to anything, it's secure by default.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    There is not a most secue O.S.

    The only secure O.S is an O.S switched off!!!

    Yes OpenBSD "Pay attention to security problems and fix them before anyone else does", but there will be always an exploit/bug/security hole/etc etc because all is made by human and the human is fallible.

    OpenBSD is good. A minimum Debian install can be secure as well. EnGarde is good for server-based needs.

    I've never tried it but

    is suppose to be good. Not sure if there's a lurking backdoor in it though.

    EnGarde has SELinux built in like Fedora does.. can be a pain to manage at first, but gets easier once you understand how it works.

    The closest to "out of the box" I can think of would be the NSA security templates. I have always felt the only secure system is one that is not hooked into the Net at all. SneakerNet interface only.
