LXer: Aging computers hobble Homeland Security - DHS using Windows 95

Published at LXer:

A recent extended downtime of Homeland Security computers only added to a list of issues the department is having with their network. Also included are system reverted back to Windows 95 after a failed Windows 2000 upgrade and databases only being linked to certain computers, meaning data must be entered repeatedly on different machines

They had been using Windows 95 and only recently decided to "upgrade" to Windows 2000? (And failed--wow.) I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
