Dunno for the US but the UK's Royal Navy switched to Windows XP for their submarines, instead of Linux so I suppose they will use Internet Explorer too

Knowing how military purchases get done in my country (Austria), I would have been surprized if Linux had made it in.

After all, approximately 5% of purchase prices are spent on "lobbying" (which in clear text is "corruption"). Microsoft certainly has that sort of money.
