If I were in charge of one of the largest militaries in the world, I’d be too scared to even think of using non-free software. Between the fact that companies like Microsoft cannot be trusted, and the fact that independant support is all but impossible, it seems to me that running Windows in the first place is bad news.

PS: needless to say, Windows still holds the record for most hack/cracked OS in computer history.

Unfortunately iOS falls into that same category as well so just picking on Windows is rosy dream one makes. But we all talk this but when we go home at nights guess what we fire up on the computers for the majority… aka Windows. If one has any delusion then I will make a suggestion. Don’t use Windows or Internet that way you avoid being a target on the internet. But I highly doubt people will go this route so they just complain and complain and still keep using Windows again at the end of the DAY.
