Article on Comparing Netfilter to Check Point FW-1

I have written an article for Information Security Magazine that compares Netfilter to Check Point FW-1. While this comparison may seem somewhat odd because FW-1 is oriented towards commercial customers and emphasizes a nice GUI, Netfilter (like other open source projects) has it where it counts even though it is completely free. The article is entitled "Firewalls: Doing it Yourself".
