heheh...  actually...  i've seen military systems that do this...

from what i've read here, not many undrestand the actual mindset of the military when 
it comes to computing.

the closest would be the guy who mentioned that since ports are on the CD's that they 
should be acceptable, this is incorrect.  it 
took me a while to figure out how backwards they really are.  this is one of the many 
reasons that they cannot keep good unix talent 

remember, these are the same people that argued that C and C++ was evil and that only 
ADA was good for nearly 15 years, until they 
finally realized they were wrong.

let's take a look at the failures of what was supposed to be ADA's swan-song project:

one that keeps crashing everywhere it's installed.
