The Navy’s newest warship is powered by Linux

Recommended Posts

 

The $3.5 billion ship is designed for stealth, survivability, and firepower, and it's packed with advanced technology. And at the heart of its operations is a virtual data center powered by off-the-shelf server hardware, various flavors of Linux, and over 6 million lines of software code.

When you build the most advanced war ship in the world, it only makes sense to use the most advanced operating system in the world to run every facet of it.
