The Navy’s newest warship is powered by Linux

The USS Zumwalt will be a floating data center—armed with missiles and robot guns.

 

When the USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) puts to sea later this year, it will be different from any other ship in the Navy's fleet in many ways. The $3.5 billon ship is designed for stealth, survivability, and firepower, and it's packed with advanced technology. And at the heart of its operations is a virtual data center powered by off-the-shelf server hardware, various flavors of Linux, and over 6 million lines of software code.

Suppose there are fewer opportunities for bugs.
