That’s Larry’s slogan but maybe you’ve heard of the huge security breach at this supermarket chain called Hannaford. Millions of customer records compromised. Guess which OS they switched to a few years ago, garnering huge amounts of praise from the freetard hackery?
For example, see this article, called “Grocer rings up savings with Linux cash registers,” which features a photo of the company’s brave pioneering CIO, Bill Homa (right). Wanna guess how long this risk-taking tech exec will have his job? Or see this triumphant press release from IBM announcing that Hannaford had just installed a gorgeous new IBM mainframe running Linux as part of a “multi-year IT transformation” at the company. Money quote: “Now all Hannaford’s partner and supplier data, inventory controls, and payment and order processing run simultaneously on 23 separate and secure [shurely shome mishtake, ed.] partitions on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 and z/OS on the single System z9.”
But wait. I thought Linux had magical powers and couldn’t be hacked. I asked Larry about it. His response? “No comment.”
Strangely, there’s also been no mention of the Hannaford situation from freetard hack Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols of Linux-Watch. I mean, one of the biggest and best-known early adopters of Linux suffers a massive security breach, and it’s not worth a mention? Funny that.
