While running away is an option, if your customer is the U.S. gov't, you can be the most competent admin out there, rational logic and stubbornness and won't make a damn bit of difference. The terms and conditions are dictated from afar and you do what you're told. Simple as that.

OTOH, if you're someone who takes pride in getting work done, making the customer happy, and find the experience of doing paperwork tedious and mind-numbing, there are less frustrating places to work.

Bring back DOS. Or something like it. If people are willing to spend crazy money on gaming hardware and tweaking the MHz out of it, let people reboot their computer into a dedicated game mode, one where the OS layer is incredibly thin, even single-user, if it means performance would be that much better.
