re OSI vs TCP/IP not due to the licensing it was just that TCP/IP was cheap and cheerful and dodged a lot of hard problems. OSI was/is hard sums and required developers to be a lot more professional whereas a lot of the TCP/IP standards and tools are "good enough for jazz" efforts knocked together by grad students .
And OSI was very cutting edge TCP/IP took years if not decades to develop mail to the point where it could do what X.400 could do. And X.500 if fully implemented far exceeds what DNS can do now.
And BTW I used to work on BT’s X.400 and X.500 products its just that some times the Best technical solution doesn’t win VHS vs Betamax for example.

>"if we offer you the job at the salary you've asked for"
Rule one is never be the first to mention what salary you looking for - I have fired agencies (from representing me) over this.
As von clausewitz says war is destroying youre enemies abaility to act - so drop a JDAM on the key cable landing sites or use ROV's to sever a countries links might not kill anyone but it still degrades the oposition.
