U.S. government still penguin shy
Wired surveyed US Cabinet agencies and found that Linux is scarcely used. One anonymous souce said that Linux is not on the approved list. The Navy, for one, is planning to use Windows 2000 in its next-generation aircraft carrier, but apparently the Department of Commerce uses Linux extensively and is enthusiastic about it. The tone of the report, however, is hesitant, saying that other countries are more enthusiastic about Linux adoption than the United States. Read the report at Wired.com.
