"Brian McCord, part of the team that installed the operating system,
said he was chosen because his senior project was deeply reliant on
Linux. The West Point team used this open-source operating system,
freely available on the Internet, instead of relying on proprietary
products from big-name companies like Microsoft or Sun Microsystems.
“It seems weird for the Army with its large contracts to be using Linux,
but it’s very cheap and very customizable,” Cadet McCord said. It is
also much easier to secure because “you can tweak it for everything you
need” and there are not as many known ways to attack it, he said."
