They're already working on that; I read something recently about a probe that they're testing on Earth right now (it's in space, looking at Earth as a control).
I think you mean the LCROSS Spacecraft
It may not be quite "public knowledge" but it is out there (page 4 for the talk about ASLR).
You can also bet that other *nixes (especially other BSD flavors) take hints on how to secure themselves from OpenBSD.
Use whatever OS suits your needs best, just don't try to bring other distros down for not following your vision.
They try their hardest to make it so that only their software will interface with it. Only thanks to the hard work from some reverse engineers do we get nice integration from 3rd party apps.

This is not a press release, this is not the "hype machine". This is just a job posting for a company that is confident that it has a future, at least long enough to make it worth filling this position. Basically, this is not news, and there is nothing for you to be upset about.
That Microsoft is trying to specify test parameters is very good thing.
Wouldn't they be interesting in finding out what might happen to paying customers when they buy the product and try to upgrade?
They are interested in upgrades from Vista to 7. What they aren't interested is in upgrades from Win7beta to Win7RC (or 7full).
Your tax dollars at work
Really? how many tax dollars do you think were spent? Some guy probably had the movie on his computer and they just put it on repeat. Don't be a drama queen. Like you've never goofed off for 10 minutes on your employer's time, which is all the time it would take. These are people too.
well done america, another reason to gain respect from the world
Yup, how dare us make fun of a former dictator while he's imprisoned. How horrible of us for us to make him watch a tv show that depicted him, an oppressive dictator, in a bad light.
