If these large companies follow the example of IBM with 
it's Postfix project, she has done more for open source 
than if she approved a government project to try and
advance it.  Government should bot be used to manhandle
companies, it's better for government to stay small,
efficient, and focused.  As far as wasting money,
someone got a much needed job and money wasn't
laying around for things I don't believe in.
