The ISS has upgraded to Linux

Remember this thread from a few years ago? What a difference just a few years make!

Those laptops I mentioned were running Windows. Then one of the Russians got an infected thumb drive. It infected his laptop and spread throughout the ISS. NASA ordered a switch to Linux to ensure that it doesn't happen again. The switch has been completed and now Linux is the only OS in operation aboard the ISS. This sounds like a plot from a movie, but it really happened.
