Linux fit for Defense
By Paul Parkinson
In an earlier blog, I commented on the potential use of Linux in Aerospace & Defense, but I didn’t provide any background information to support my assertion that people seem to either love or hate Linux, and that often their views are formed from emotive arguments and prejudice rather than rational fact-based discussions.
Last week, Paul Tingey discussed some interesting examples of polarised views in different countries in a recent blog Open Source: Do you love or hate it? So, I thought I should comment on some of the views which have been expressed in relation to the use of Linux in defence.
