But encryption is only useful against NSA. (Or on wireless.) If you have a wired network and you send your credit card number to a site without encryption, the chances of being intercepted by a criminal are tiny. Anderson said in Security Engineering that SSL was insisted on because of hysteria and that eavesdropping on conversations is rather hard if you don't have isp access.
There are still gimp developers? The program is great but to be useful for work it needs the new features that have been promised for several years: adjustment layers, more than 8 bits per channel. These were promised about 2010. Really grateful but will there ever be another version?
Missing an even bigger reason. How could we trade freely with Europe if our stuff doesn't meet their (safety) standards? We would still have to follow their standards even outside: that's what Switzerland, etc. do.
Regardless of whether you realise the sense of coordinating these things so that each eu member doesn't need their own re-invented-wheel standards: its 99% of what the eu actually does: uk civil servants would be doing it otherwise but that would be stupid.
