007 Likes Linux

Not a GIS topic per se, nor involving the Caribbean but, according to Ubuntu, UK CESG has scored Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as the best when evaluating it, Windows, Apple, Android and other operating systems, in its guidance for End User Devices Security and Configuration in the UK public sector. The obscure sounding CESG was once the Communications-Electronics Security Group, and is now the UK National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, a sub-organisation of GCHQ, and 'advises organisations on how to protect their information and information systems against today's threats'. Whether the spin is correct that Ubuntu is the best, or not, it's clear that this Open Source software is established at the Enterprise level.
