I read/heard 3 news bits today that are interesting when considered together. 2 from Linuxtoday:
a statement from a security expert that basically all MS Windows products are not only
inherently insecure, but insecurable, due to the nature of the code, and an article detailing
the NSA's efforts at writing a secure Linux and opening the source code. Finally on NPR, an
announcement that Microsoft is proposing to write the software portion of an on line voting
system, teaming up w/ IBM and Unisys.

Where do we want your vote to go today, Chad?
