SSH v. OpenSSH

Openssh for me. Ssh.com's support for the version 1 protocol has known
security flaws. Also, to support both protocols, you need (as I
understand it) to have two ssh daemons running. Openssh handles it all
in one fell swoop. Also, rpm updates are available for openssh if you
go that route...
