In recent years the big backer of one particular variant of "Linux on the desktop" is the US military.

They seem to finally figure out that using Windows for things like cruisers are a no-go, and has adopted Linux as the replacement as they can then still shop around for hardware.

This is why we are getting all kinds of replacement for working subsystems, because they are not "secure" in the eyes of the military. Funny thing is that their enemy may well be their own troops more than anything else, as seen with Manning and Snowden.

In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.
