"If there is one thing about the crew on the International Space Station, it is that they use a lot of laptops. The crew up there consists of only six members but they have around 140 laptops up there. That equates to around 23 laptops per person. What’s even more surprising is that at least 80 of the laptops are in use at any given moment."

Do you want to know why Linux is in space and not Windows??? Because No one wants a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) in space. The astronauts might die if they're life support depended on a single distro of Microsoft Windows.
