Tech Win: Vandals break into congressman’s office; install Linux

The Register reports that vandals broke into New York congressman Michael Grimm’s campaign office and installed Linux on the server and workstations.  When asked for a comment, Grimm stated “This is an attack against a federal campaign office, which is an attack on our democracy as a whole.  It’s an attack against what we stand for, for free elections.”

Well, I don’t know so much about that last part, but I digress.

Vandals broke a few windows (which smacks of irony as well), installed Linux on all the campaign office computers but did not steal anything.  The damage was discovered Sunday September 23rd, since nothing was stolen, it is considered criminal michief.

No one made mention of what distro was installed, but I gotta say, that was very creative.
