I am an independent and I don't care what OS the candidates run as
long as they help straighten out this mess! I doubt in the end that
any of them will do anything useful.
I got a call from the Mitt Romney campaign about 13 months ago for some
work at the Boston headquarters. They were having trouble finding
Republicans who knew all the open-source software they were using. Most
of the people are younger and therefore Democratic (apparently). As a
project manager that's one of the most unusual constraints and risks
that I've ever heard of.
