That's the quick and dirty slides I made for a notebook to run at FOSE
2008. It's CC BY-SA licensed so anyone in NoVALUG can remix it as
needed (see license for details, yadda yadda). There are probably a
lot of places that Linux is being used that aren't readily visible. A
lot of prototyping gets done on Linux, for example.
But we were visited by a number of people at the booth back in the
spring who shared their Linux use, including:
* DC Courts
* Department of Health and Human Services
* Department of Homeland Security
NASA and NSA obviously are very Linux-heavy as well.
