Open Source On Mars!

O'Reilly's ONLamp.com has an interesting story about the decision by NASA to use free/open source software for Mars Rover control systems, both on Earth and on Mars (the Earthside software -- Maestro -- is actually available for download). The article doesn't go into great detail about precisely how FOSS was used in the Rovers, only that it worked -- and worked well.
