Given how easy it is to protect an ubuntu system with ufw, there shouldn't be 
any machine without a firewall configured. In trusted environments like the own 
studio with a more sophisticated firewall gating the internet-access, the 
firewall settings can be more relaxed. But as more and more people use laptops 
(or pcs in 19" racks) at various locations, everyone should be aware that in 
these cases the "trusted network" ends at the connection from front-side-bus 
to network-device and configure the firewall accordingly.

Have fun,
