More Government Discussion

If we have access to public information and we are the watchdogs to make sure our government is secure and sane, why shouldn’t we use open source software? I have little faith in Microsoft to make software that is secure and that if security issues were found, that they would fix them in a timely manner. I want my government IT people to be able to fix it themselves, without having to wait on a giant corporation. I want freedom from the whims and policies of a corporation that doesn’t have to answer to We the People.
