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.
