I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 as a Firewall in SOHO environment with the thought of installing a GUI on it. Is it true that this would be a mistake because I should not run other applications on a firewall. Why is this the case?
I just don't understand why putting a GUI on it would affect the "security" of a Firewall.
