  3. First the Department of Transportation next will be the FAA then Boeing then the world ah ha ha ha!!!!!

  4. They are also testing SUSE Linux.

  5. You have to question whether the issue is with Windows itself or the legacy apps and systems that DOT is (probably) still using.

  6. Lite [5]:
    If an OS doesn’t run the legacy applications that an organization requires, does that mean that the apps or the organization are wrong? I would offer that Vista was rejected for a business reason.
