Just buying a cheap DSL router, and let it function as some kind of "personal
firewall", will help many people alot against misconfigurations. As well
against insecure default installs.
It's worth taking note that SSH is very often activated as part of the
install, so when you log in for the first time, the SSH deamon is running.
What if you are randomly hacked just after (during?) install because your
machine was directly connected to the internet as a result of a new exploit?
Windows has it's own problems, so to speak.
