“hey, isn’t it called Large Hadron Collider?
Yes, it is, but apparently they’re using KDE for visualisation and so it’s just a matter of time they’re putting the K in it. Using KDE alone of course isn’t indication that they’re using Linux, as it runs on FreeBSD just as well, but the fact that those guys and gals at CERN made their own distribution called Scientifix Linux, at least makes it very likely that in fact Linux is used.
What definately is using Linux, is the LHC Computing Grid and about one month from now, when they first let protons collide and the world is sucked into a black hole I’ll think that at least they used Linux and open source to destroy the world!
Take that Bill Gates!
