The article didn't say what the OS was. There is always the Offline Windows Password reset floppy/CD if it's a 'doze system. Saved my butt more than once ;-). Or is the filesystem encrypted too? Or being a government system, they probably went with a non-*nix, non-Windoze weird-ass proprietary system. Maybe the vender has a back-door. Obviously, they don't have admins that know what they are doing. That's why they pay them so much (government = illogic).

From the article, "It's pretty sad, but beyond a certain small segment of computer users, you can't give Linux away." Two of the most sacrilegious reasons: "On the whole, users aren't all that dissatisfied with Windows" and "Linux is still too geeky." So what do /.-ers have to say about this?"
