1000 times too slow

This is all what was needed to connect the XP machine back to the network!

Helsinki University has outsourced parts of its IT infrastructure to Microsoft. Even if outsourcing is cheaper in the short term than generating equivalent services locally, the net effect is likely negative due to the lost jobs, know how and independence. It doesn’t need a conspiracy to explain this self-destructive behavior, just bad decision criteria, which do not include long term and externalized costs.

Scientists spend more and more time preparing grant applications because of the growing competition for the shrinking resources.
