I'm just saying that an Operating System is not defined to include a Firewall or Virus protection. If you want to include the capability into the OS thats fine, but dont throw it on after the fact. AKA build it into the TCP/IP stack or dont build it in at all.

Perhaps we should leave this up to the distro creator...to decide what to include, all media players that run on Windows should eventually run on ROS....so what more do you need... You've got all the capability you need...mostly freely available on the net... Including a media player in ROS by ROS i...
