And I'd like to be on first name terms and phone numbers with supermodels.
But' something tells me that won't happen either.
Govt con-tractors are *very* adept at re-phrasing their stuff to make it *look* like the mark^h^h^h^h customer is getting what they asked for while it's BAU in the back room.
Making *any*new apps operate on *internet* standards and not Microsoft (or Google or Apple) standards would be a start.
In reality *how* many people wake up and think "Yes, I think I can do a better Social Security system just for the hell of it"?
However *breaking* those monolithic monster apps into *smaller* functions, *some* of which will be available as open source (NASA's Martian landers support software were built on an open source framework, including some quite specialised stuff you might not think was available *in* an open source version) is feasible.
*cautious* thumbs up. Doubt it will go anywhere.
