This is true of pretty much anything. I install large software systems, and this is absolutely true for these systems - it is more important to get something that IT department/department that will own that software understands, or at the very least is similar in design to existing software. If no one understands the "best" software, installation will harder, support will be harder and the project is much more likely to fail.


"It's sad that the leader of a so-called leftist party should still subscribe to a crypto-fascist ideology of strong leadership."

You don't mean that leftist parties have not subscribed to an ideology of strong leadership, surely?

Or are you writing off Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, various generations of Kims, Gerry Adams, Scargill, Thorez and Ceacescu as crypto-fascists?

Not to mention the current Chinese leadership, whoever they are.

I wouldn't disagree with you if you did, but I would like to know what you think.
