The Air Force's secure Linux distribution

,----[ Quote ]
| Outside of the U.S., there are several ânationalâ Linux distributions. These 
| include Chinaâs Red Flag Linux; Turkeyâs Pardus, and the Philippinesâ 
| Bayahnian. Other countries, like Russia, are on their way to moving their 
| entire IT infrastructure to Linux and open-source software. In the U.S., the 
| government, especially the military, makes use of Linux all the time. Indeed, 
| Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux), the most popular software set for hardening 
| Linux against Linux is sponsored by the National Security Agency. But, there 
| hasnât been a national American Linux desktop distributionâ until now.
