Your Navy drones are now running Linux....

Well they will be after Raytheon get's done migrating them over from Windows.  Redmond lost another battle against Linux and we here at feel a little safer for it.  The Navy had a small hacking issue with some of their drones and decided to replace Windows with Linux.  The hope is that the open source base will result in a harder to hack and more secure system.  Let's hope that Raytheon gets it right.
