That's right, even the NSA uses Linux. Looks like they have released a super high security version of Linux. Not sure if I will download it and try it. The NSA kinda scares me Of couse the sorce code is available so I guess no conspiracy theorys here.

Has anyone downloaded/installed this?

I have and they hacked me. Nothing is really secure on this earth as there is always someone smarter than the next person or stronger as Bruce Lee was once quoted saying.

Just cause you have SELinux doesn't mean its hack proof. There are too many other reasons in why you get hacked, usually from what I've seen, its always the person administering the box's own fault..
