Doesn't it make more sense to use some type of real time system like Linux/UNIX in a read only mode? Are these people playing farmville between sorties or what? F'n ridiculous.

And while I'm at it, it'd be nice if kids learned how computers work instead of learning windows and mac apps only. What's next, get the latest SAMS launcher software, only from the App Store! (trademark, patent pending, etc. )

The future is now. I remember when I was a kid this stuff was science fiction. Now software as a weapon exists.

Agreed. Need to start using a custom kernel on military machines. Does not make sense to be using Windows.

Actually no, the next iteration of Netwarrior will be Android based rather than iOS based.

Its WAY easier than you think to pop a thumb drive onto the red net.

What about the possibility that someone within the military wrote the virus and released it within the network?
