Re: Ubuntu Cloud powered the Obama campaign

I worked the field campaign, while the staffers used Thinkpads running Windows we had Ubuntu servers pushing a bank of thin clients for the volunteer phone bankers.

Worked out great.

On the US governmental note, ACE is a big proponent source and due to the tight security that they need to run, they use Linux a lot and have released lots of good code into the open source ecosystem (the biggest one being GRASS). They're also the biggest user of the speex codec.
