this is A very good time , as all the apps that require
"EAL $ and above and or "trusted" status. can now be run on Linux, also means Companys and biz's alike can now get there hands on a "trusted" system for a reasonable price.

altho the Certifcation will be on IBM hardware, which I belive (not sure off) to run a "trusted" app you need to run it on the hardware it was certified on i think, which is good for IBM. ;)

but, many many comapnys can now get the benifit of a full EAL4_ trusted system for there apps if the need it.
