Systemd, firewalld... Linux from what formerly was "UNIX-like" becomes "MS
Windows-like". This is what you will hear from everybody fleeing Linux (I
for one started gradually moving servers to FreeBSD a while back).

BTW, original poster is doing extremely correct security wise thing:
enumerates good, and prohibits everything else. To the contrary to
logically flawed "Windows antivirus" approach which is attempting to
"enumerate bad". I mean general approach, the philosophy, it doesn't
matter that I exemplify it here with "apples" and there with "oranges".
