Quoting from the link: "..., but you can't go to BestBuy and buy Linux with a specific distro on it that everyone uses that has widespread market share"

I thought you could buy linux PCs off the shelf in one of big American chains (walmart???). Was a low powered eco thingy iirc.

Also as far as I know you can buy linux on laptops from Dell as well.

If Bin Laden died the US would need to resurrect him. He's a boogeyman that's useful for reminding people why we spend an insane amount of money on the war on terror. For all I know the CIA has been producing all the Bin Laden videos since 2002.

Give them a password that doesn't work, say that was the one you used and thus it must have been changed by a trojan after you last logged out.. You have then provided a password so are not guilty of failing to provide a password and they can't prove without access that it wasn't a trojan. No idea how that would play out but if you are getting locked up anyway then it would be worth a try.
