I was pointed to an article this week that said just the opposite of this
statement. (http://abcnews.go.com/sections/tech/FredMoody/moody.html)  The
article says that Linux is not approved by the government, and therefore
not used, for security reasons, making it a major set back for the
community.  I found it hard to believe that there were no Linux computers
in the Gov.  Now I realize that Moody is basically anti-Linux, but I was
wondering if anyone know who's telling the truth - because I agree with Ray
that this could be another argument to add to the list.

Just curious....
