Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?

* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.

* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.

* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.

* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.

"Can't you tell?"
"I can analyse your expression, your breathing, temperature and more, and conclude you want me to."
"There you go."
"But that is me telling me you want me to. I need to hear you tell me you want me to."
"Kiss me!"
They did.
