Why the ミ★ Confederate Space Force ★彡 Uses Linux

On my recommendation, the Confederate Space Force has officially adopted Linux for use in all of our starships, satellites, and ground support.

    • Every member of even the Space Force is above all, a rifleman. The last thing we want is to unnecessarily complicate things for even the least technically sophisticated soldier in our armed forces, whether in the infantry, artillery, cavalry, navy, air force, or space force. The primary reason for using Linux is to simplify the user interface and experience of even the most advanced technology. Linux is much simpler and easier to use and maintain than Windows® or Mac.
    • For years the armed forces have been vulnerable to Yankee influence and sabotage through the use of proprietary computer operating systems which are susceptible to viruses and other malware. Linux is far less susceptible to malware.
    • Most software available for Linux is free of cost to the user, saving the Confederacy zillions of dollars. No license fees and none of that other Yankee bovine excrement that drives up expenses to benefit our enemy.

Whether for military use or otherwise, Linux beats the living hell out of the major alternative operating systems available.

If you have thought about enlisting in the Confederate Space Force but have assumed that the technology must be beyond your ability or comfort level as an “ordinary user” of computers, rest assured: Linux makes it easy on even the most technophobic among us (including myself).

I Got Promoted…

…to Lieutenant Commander in the Confederate Space Force! My first command was on our latest away mission while the Captain was assigned to a spy mission where he was able to document this alien life form working for the Democratic Party:

Alien trying to interpret symbols

In an art museum, this well-disguised life form was trying to interpret symbols on a fire suppression access panel. Obviously an alien, ignoring the existing cultural wealth of the museum in order to undermine the safety of visitors.

In the meantime I was tasked with conducting battle drills on the CSS General Lee (pictured below). Not so much to sharpen the crew’s fine skills as to familiarize me with my new ship and the protocol I am expected to follow as First Officer (still a sidekick, dontchya know).

It’s a great honor and a great challenge! More later as things develop and as public release allows.
