Q

Do I need intrusion detection for my Linux computers?

Should I deploy an intrusion-detection system to watch my Linux computers?
Yes, considering that you can get quality intrusion-detection software for free. Snort NIDS (www.snort.org) does the job just fine, even though it takes some learning.
