The French national police sensibly switched 37,000 desktop PCs to Linux. Linux is an alternative operating system to Windows and Mac operating systems. Why Linux? It is free and open (open source). Linux is more secure and can be verified, via source code inspection, to be free of USA (or anyone else’s) spying “back doors”. So Linux is ideal for use in just about all government systems. The French cops made the correct choice. The UK government should also be migrating away from Windows kit and Apple kit to Linux ASAP. The Devil knows what surveillance tendrils the US Government / NSA have in Windows and Mac phone-home features and Windows “Update” features and other potential spying mechanisms.
