Huh? What X-Ray dosing system is running Linux? does it save lives preventing X restarting? And what 
idiot would be trusted using Linux, not knowing what CAB does at a 
critical moment of someone's life connected to that computer?

Is this the culmination of cookie-cutter boiler-plate certification 
degree programs pooing out Windows sysadmins that never edited the 
system registry?

Why would they if people insist on removing every potentially hazardous 
thing in the name of making it impossible to use when things go wrong 
aside from rebooting at the slightest hint of problems? I stopped using 
Windows as my primary OS years ago because of that kind of issue.
