Windows "As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades." Not bad, but there are the usual asterisks, as Ars notes.

Government moves much more slowly than the tech world.


That may be, but Windows still does not have the equivalent of SELinux or AppArmor; and Windows has had a lot longer time in the Security Environments used by gov't than Linux has - yet Linux has the highest possible security of any COTS products along with only one other COTs product - Trusted Solaris.

Which means Linux can do things Windows can't, and it can go places in gov't that Windows can't as well.
