“42 MILLION”

And they’re out here wording that (almost certainly intentionally) like it’s some insane waste of money.

Talk to me when it gets near 0.01% of the defense budget.

Or 1% of the money that has been gratuitously sprayed all over every telecom company for things they conditionally accepted money for but never delivered on.

onlinepersona,

Well would you look at that! Open standards are useful after all. But somehow admitting that opensource is superior for competition is a hard pill to swallow.

JoMomma,

Tax payers paying to develop something for giant corporations to use freely… again

x3i,

I'm.gonna let you in on a little secret: pretty much anything achieved in computer science today is either because corporations developed sth with the intention of using it for themselves/creating a monopoly or it is funded by governments (ideally free to use but often for exclusive use by selectred companies).

So this is the best approach out of these three possibilities. Public money should always result in public projects, not proprietary bullshit.

lostmypasswordanew,

Um what? Since when are open standards that allow vendor interoperability a bad thing?

spider,

…as if pharmaceuticals weren’t enough.

JoMomma,

I don’t have enough pharmaceuticals
