Why isn’t all government software open source?

Why isn’t all government software open source?

(from opensource.com)

“before the first line of code is ever written, the odds are stacked against the project from ever seeing the outside of the agency’s firewall … open sourcing these solutions the first time around could potentially decrease the demand for that same code being written a second time at the taxpayer’s expense … Why isn’t all government software open source? Because you’ve got an entire value chain designed to produce closed source software, a system at equilibrium, with few incentives to rethink itself”

Pretty much, without even counting ‘corruption,’ in the 80s and 90s things were different, today, there is not even ‘legal standing’ in most of PA choices of closed $oftware, if not political foraging of protected companie$.

However the (obvious) process is hard to implement because of diffused moronity within employees of public administration, which explains the success of the $impleton operating $ystem, besides conflict of interest produced by the usual corruption and false claims data of corrupted press and media.

The solution could be quite simple, can not use anything different than the $impleton operating $ystem ?, fine, transferred or fired, cheaper than training morons.
