Linux NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab is using Linux extensively... on the desktop! "At the JPL, it is common to see Red Hat Inc., SuSE or Mandriva Linux running on users' desktops alongside Windows.". On a side note, they don't trust Linux on the server: "Our personal view is that Linux, period, is only for the desktop. We don't run our main servers on Linux, because there are too many flaws in main Linux kernel," he said.

There are plenty of people relying on Linux for important work, so a comment like -

"...We don't run our main servers on Linux, because there are too many flaws in main Linux kernel,"

Really needs to be fleshed out with specific examples. The lack of detail has brought out the usual OSNews trolls.

P.S. Mandrake would not have been my first choice Linux distro "years ago".
