I was there in the early 80's. Computer security officer was one of my additional duties at that time. Tempest was a pain in the ass but it was not a secret. There were signs that had to be posted, training that everyone had to have, inspections that had to be done. Power cables had to be separated from data cables and other cables had to only cross at right angles. Lots and lots of paranoia.

All iMacs can act as an external display for another machine. I'm using two of them for that at the moment. A quick keyboard shortcut switches it from displaying it's own video to displaying the external video. It's called Target Display Mode if you want to google it.

That is actually the way it originally worked. It was changed by the 17th amendment. Senators were selected by whatever means each state wanted to use. Typically, they were appointed. There are a number of people who think the change has had a negative effect in that the Senate no longer functions as an effective moderating influence.

A small minority of the market thats still an order of magnitude bigger than that of desktop Linux. Your argument makes no sense. While no guarantee of success, being able to hand a "normal" a laptop with your OS loaded and not have their head explode is an important first step. Windows and OS X do a reasonable job of this. Far from perfect but the experience is not too bad for most people. Linux, regardless of distribution, is not there yet. It can be frustrating for highly technical users...much less normals.

The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
