Launched a fortnight ago as a secure gateway for federal public servants 
to electronically submit reports on government related e-security and 
hacking incidents, the portal notably includes a direct link to a Linux 
Kernal site under the heading of Downloads/Operating Systems. 

Amusingly, the penguin flavoured OS also rates 9/10 DSD biohazard stars 
for e-security under the site's user rating system [one user], and comes 
with rave review from one DSD insider. 

"Linux is a very advanced server operating system with exceptional 
stability and security features. It is now even starting to penetrate the 
desktop market with an excellent desktop environment (KDE) and a great 
office suite (OpenOffice)," said the DSD user.

[i'm scratching my head, too...]
