Since it's, you know, those guys, I'm sure their IT solution for NASA involves Citrix somehow.
I've found that design review boards are becoming increasingly hostile toward singletons, too. There was a narrow window where they'd at least consider one, back when people started talking about design patterns. These days it's next to impossible to get one approved, even if there's pretty good justification for it. You can always design around the need for a singleton, and usually the system design will be better without them.
Anywhoo, back in the '90's I worked for a company that was getting a B2 Certification for its operating system. My job basically consisted of reading the entire AT&T C standard library code, finding potential security flaws, writing tests for those flaws and then writing a report with the tests which would be delivered to the NSA. I found the remote buffer overflow in the AT&T telnet daemon a couple years before the same overflow was discovered in the Linux telnet daemon. So the NSA basically outsourced the hard work of finding all those exploits to the companies that were trying to get security certifications. It took three or four guys just a few months to go through all the stuff we had to look at. I'm sure we missed a bit, but I was much more confident in the security of their OS at the end of all that. Too bad they eventually went out of business, were acquired by IBM and their products were killed. You know, progress!
I'm probably going to have to break down and set up a Windows machine for a VR rig I want to build in a couple of months. It doesn't seem like any of the VR headsets support Linux particularly well, although I'll check again when I'm actually doing the build.
We're just easing into the world where no secrets can be kept. There will be some discontent as the proles start to see how the sausage is made, but whenever they realize that all the machinery is that dirty, things should settle down a bit. It's pretty much a universal truth that anyone who actively seeks power should under no circumstances be allowed to have that power. They're all fucking scumbags but we'll keep voting for them or the wrong scumbag will get it. I mean, what else could we do? Have a draft like Jury Duty? "Congratulations, you've been selected to serve 6 years in the Senate. Here's a six digit salary and a page. Try not to fuck it up!" It would never work because reasons!
And before you guys get your panties in a knot, I don't even have to google to know those guys don't have a monopoly on little boy fucking. It's apparently impossible to make it to adulthood without being raped by someone, no matter what country you live in. Maybe you get raped by your priest. Maybe you get raped by a US Senator. Maybe you get abducted and raped by some random stranger in a windowless van. Seeing as how no one has come forward by now (And they always do,) I'd guess Trump is probably in the minority of people in the top 1% who didn't get there for the sole purpose of fucking children whenever they want to.
