Rather than begging for handouts they should come up with a cost efficient solution that can be maintained indefinitely. It just so happens that the Cloud is probably not going to be an option.

As a single example I refuse to believe that the millions they sink into Microsoft's wallet each year for their excess licenses of Office 36x is justified when they could just stick with the old copies. Its not like they need the cutting edge features do they?
