I’ve been using IPFire for a short time after testing other firewall OS out there. But I recently decided to look at Sophos XG.
First thing I like to check is the kernel version, in this case it’s Linux:
Good to see they’re using a long-term kernel (4.14.x) but using 4.14.38 which was released 30 Apr 2018 (Ouch!). I’d love to see how many commits from 4.14.38 to latest today (4.14.230). Can anyone be bothered to do a git diff?
