The problem with all these profound theories that _diversification is better_ is that the market disagrees: for pretty much all the history of computing, the market has chosen one standard operating system.

That we don't yet understand why, is just a casual observation....

(like the observation that blogs on risk don't understand https!)

Regardless of your history point, which is debatable, what we were discussing was *government*, not "the market". The U.S. government is choosing monoculture in a much more single-minded way than the current U.S. market. This is bad.
