This may be old, but just ran across it the other day and thought many of us would enjoy it.

Mahngiel made an excellent post. I hope you take the time to peruse it, I especially was interested in the security reasons that Cuba adopted Linux.
The sysadmins in Largo, FL seem to be happy. And the One Laptop Per Child program seems to be a success.

Funny that they alluded to NASA in there... a few years ago I visited the Marshall Space Flight Center and saw something which surprised me. The crazy control rooms (think tons of monitors per station, rows of stations, straight out of movie) they have for the International Space Station and for Space Shuttle launches appeared to be entirely WinXP machines.

As an honest OSS user, may I draw your attention to the fact that none of those in the mentioned article are individual home users? I would think they make use of Linux (or *BSD) for server needs.

I would very much like to see all home users using OSS, but for now all I can do is... Well I can't do much :)

Cheers.
