Forced to Use Windows and Give up Linux

I thought this story was interesting.

In another victory for the Motion Picture Industry of America, a former movie pirate is being forced to switch from the Linux OS to Windows.

It’s almost as if they want to associate Linux with Pirating.

“I had a meeting with my probation officer today and he told me that he has to install monitoring software onto my PC. No big deal to me; that is part of my sentence,” McCausland explained on his blog. “However, their software doesn’t support GNU/Linux (which is what I use). So, he told me that if I want to use a computer, I would have to use an OS that the software can be installed on.”

It’s hard to believe that there isn’t a sufficient tracking software for Linux that can be used.
