After voting for Brexit, the UK has to negotiate its trade relations with the EU and other countries. In this context, the so-called 'Norwegian model' has emerged as a favorable option, but what does it actually mean?

+Graham Linux Norway is part of schengen and have access to the EU market. This means free flow of goods and services. It has all the benefits and drawbacks of beeing a member, except for the added drawback of not getting to vote.

many years ago when I arrived at work, I could tell when employees were going to be given their "pink-slips" (fired/retrenched) as the normally unarmed security guards I'd show my ID to [on entry] were armed.

before the employee was notified; two+ armed guards appeared so the ex-employee couldn't sabotage the computer system (ie. the guards ensured they didn't go to their own desk, or to any other terminal/pc/desk). [i'm thinking back when mobile phones were bricks and I preferred using a beeper & public/private phone]

this talks about employers looking for trouble well before the decision to 'fire/retrench' staff has even started. (if I was aware of that sort of thing; I've blanked it from my memory...)
With the proliferation of shadowy black markets on the so-called “darknet” — hidden crime bazaars that can only be accessed through special software that obscures one's true location online — it has never been easier for disgruntled employees to harm their current or former employer.

INTERESTING discussion.
I'm always in/out for standards (read: only one format / version / way) and diversity that makes GNU/Linux safer and evolving faster than any other OS.
Definitively professional use versions (and there you got DESKTOPS, guys, not phones or any other castrated cr@p for the clouds!!!!!) must have some kind of standard. Then, different distro families can enjoy themselves with variants, options, as have been so far. I think so.
