The US Navy’s newest warship is powered by Linux

Quote:
When the USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) puts to sea later this year, it will be different from any other ship in the Navy's fleet in many ways. The $3.5 billon ship is designed for stealth, survivability, and firepower, and it's packed with advanced technology. And at the heart of its operations is a virtual data center powered by off-the-shelf server hardware, various flavors of Linux, and over 6 million lines of software code.

Why not? Windows has been taking a downturn lately- months straight of unreliable, faulty updates that seem to harm or even brick too many PCs. A new OS that turned out to be a useless joke, and system security that's more vulnerable than ever. Windows only stays on top because of gaming, while the military probably wants something a bit less unreliable and something they can code and later as they need on the fly.

This is what I noticed from the article.
Wanted and need highly trained sailors but computer wizards not needed.

The CDS workstation uses common USB interfaces for its peripheral devices (such as trackballs and specialized button panels) and is equipped with touchscreens, as well, so that watch standers have a choice between "classic" and touch interfaces.

Raytheon team has had sailors in to perform usability assessments from before code was even written, showing them screen shots of interfaces to get feedback from users. "We had a chief that said, 'We don't want any 'wizards,'" said Froncillo

3.5 billion is sure a lot of money for one ship but considering
the amount of R & D for the first one over that period of time maybe not.

The CDS,,,,, yeh, for final usage
Just like an ATM..
You don't need the final user to type anything, just follow the bouncing ball.
Same for the Command Crew.

But then where the code is written......
that is something different.
