And here we have a bot which deserves to be shat upon by no less than 56 bovine...
I believe the primary obstacle is that the gov't [particularly the federal gov't] loathes actually hiring people. they want to outsource everything, because of the mantra "private industry steals the best". and then to make sure only the crappiest companies bid on the project, make everyone submit hundreds of pages of mostly useless paperwork, and then pick the lowest bidder, regardless of ability to actually perform the work. Then, when the lowest bidder fails, award the contract to a close friend's company, and whatever price they suggest, because "it has to get done by yesterday".
THIS! This IS exactly what happens, and the laws, processes, and people that are in place are so broken it is impossible to get anything meaningful accomplished. It's ALL WASTED. The Time, Money, and Talent are spent on chasing down paperwork that was submitted properly 2 months ago that one bottle-necked individual couldn't bother to take 5 seconds to sign because they had to take a 2 week long vacation with nobody as an alternate point of contact or delegate of responsibility. Now you have to resubmit all that paperwork AGAIN because since the first submission the form has changed. They added a box to account for pink slippers instead of "light red" slippers, but that's only after not being told by anyone the form changed. If you're lucky, you might get that stuff in before you run into other issues that prevent even more actual work, but somehow create even greater paperwork. Often you end up putting in a year and a half effort into getting granted extensions for 6 months.
You mean the Chinese will start pirating Linux next?
The only way to get them to use Linux is to tell them it costs something.
Illegally connect and use RedHat repos?
Anyone else here miss the 1980s USSR? Looks like Putin does

I know several 80's kids who loved H*R, myself included! Not to mention several Millennials!
