not only military

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on January 25, 2006 01:25 AM
even the military has to consider money constrains.
They have the fair burden of strange languages that
nobody understand than there contracter. Why not
use open source software ? you have a lot of ppl
working on it and the change is great that you
can find simple and cheap solutions. (but mil has
other constrains than technical or money).

That counts for other goverment bodys also.
emergency services e.g. they need simple reliable
systems they can understand and look into.
easy done with open source, hard work with closed source.
