    What OS does the Death Star use

    If you were building a death star what os would you use and why?

    I would use windows 7 because unlike my space station, there are obviously no weaknesses for that rebel alliance to exploit.

    I would...

    give the death star no operating system whatsoever because I'd use it as target practice against my fleet of god-powered warships capable of obliterating entire planets with a single shot

    ***Rant Begins***
    Please! Blow up the copy of XP on my desktop with your death star! Take it now! Aaaargh! Spare me from it's "Windows has experienced a problem" dialog boxes and the online help that talks about the BSOD I never saw!
    ***Rant Ends***

    /me pauses for a deep breah, muttering something about "Stupid Windows", and tries to refocus on the thread's topics.

    Recommendations: for efficient operation of a death star, something that is Linux-based might be in order. For maximum confusion, something intermittently buggy like the copy of XP currently on my desktop might be in order.

    (And yes, I just had a few anxious moments with my desktop, where XP os currently the only OS. A few minutes ago I had just finished nutting off to myself, there's a knock on the door by a couple of nuns inviting us to a Christmas party.)

    I'd at least use one that didn't give full network access to any random astro-droid who sidled up to the terminal.

    Some sort of open source stable OS, but on the 3rd login attempt that fails it goes to a XP or Vista faux bugged up OS.

    Edit: also when the faux OS starts up there should be a Darth Vader voice prompt that says in a condescending way "whats the matter Luke can't remember your identity and password" then a evil maniacal laugh.
