Some companies wont want their competitors, &/or suppliers/
clients to even know What OS's they run, let alone how many.  

Some government departments too (whose `competitors' could include
foreign governments, terrorists, thieves, & civil liberties groups etc).

I installed on 1 of 3 public servers, but not on firewalls or internals.
