Websites, databases, firewalls, DNS, application server, file-servers - most businesses run some form of UNIX or Linux. And wouldn't dare think otherwise. This article is stupid. I work for a company where we would literally lose millions for every reboot of certain mission critical servers. UNIX ain't going nowhere.

Given the size of the prison population is but a mere fraction of the general population, I'm guessing there would be waaaaaaaaaaaay more free citizens willing to sign-up for that one-way ride. I, for one, would leave my very lucrative IT job in minute if I were green-lighted that mission. I know a lot of of people that would sign up. My only concern is that my family would be taken care of financially.

Gravity brings me down.
