This is the natural result
...of purchasing proprietary "black box" software licenses, instead of obtaining free open-source packages and customizing them as required.
Of course, the second approach would not provide much financial support to the Republican Party's huge corporate owner, Microsoft. It would, however, give ownership of the security to the US government. As things are right now, Microsoft owns whatever security exists - and Microsoft is completely in charge of whatever security *problems* exist.
Also, creating an "official US government distribution" of a free open-source operating system and business software package would mean long-term employment of a few American citizens, as it would be unthinkable to outsource software programming of this sort of thing.
Say, isn't some of the code for Microsoft Office developed in East Asia? Makes one wonder...
