See, now this is one of the major differences between Red Hat and
Canonical right now. You can bet that if it were Ubuntu on those
systems, that news would be plastered all over the place. Even a more
in-depth article on the matter doesn't mention what distribution
Since I don't see it mentioned anywhere, I'll withhold any *cough*
"guesses" as to what they're actually running.
Okay, no I won't.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt. I guess you missed that one."
