Its a rhetorical statement and common usage in the English language - "X is a 
secret", you'll see it used a lot in the tourism and real estate, e.g 
"Windoloo Beach is one of the best kept secrets in Australia".


Obviously neither beaches or Proxmox are actual secrets ;) It just means they 
are relatively unknown.
