Also many Oz government offices, local councils whatever..

Not the sexy, high prestige, celebrity government offices, but the nuts and bolts departments that actually have work to do, and a budget that has to be split between maintaining their garbage truck, providing PPE and shovels to lean on for their workers, and stationery and office equipment - which is probably what they use instead of an IT budget.
