government intervention is the last thing we need. We do need government limitation though (government preventing any organization funded by government taxes from using proprietary software). If it gets beyond government limitation, then a sour apple gets in the government, and since precedent is already there, they force everyone in the country to use proprietary software and outlaw open source software. However; whenever the government has a limitation on itself (even if proprietary software isn't completely done away with, just severely limited) it's always better for the citizens.
