Open source in the police department

What I appreciate about this article over at RedHat (as I read):

1. This guy clearly will bounce between operating systems. He mentions “MSYS” ( which also should be in one’s bag of tricks with cygwin.

2. He is willing to consider some old 8086 machines and dot-matrix printers as potential time-saving tools.

3. He mentions the Penguin Sleuthkit, which looks great as a forensic tool. It is incredibly important to use tools which protect the integrity of the scene — there can be no question of tampering with anything. This kit looks like it has the tools one would need to do a rapid look-over.
