currently run on eith UNIX or LINUX... Windows is too unstable for their programs. In other words, even Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer's
software is UNIX based. Sure, these businesses use Windows apps and machines, etc. but not to actually run their business. The company I work for
has one that runs on either LINUX, or Windows, but we're currently espousing the LINUX version as it's easier (and cheaper) to customize.
Of course, that said, I wouldn't want it as my home system...too many compatibility problems....but if all it does is run custom software, as you can
bet the NSA's does, it makes it easier to customize, and probably easier to secure....
