#2 Better the chinese have to go to the effort of hacking it.

#7 Microsoft are more professional than any slacks and spectacles bunch of techno yuppies out there. For decades they've produced reliable, feasible software solutions and support to most govts the world over.

Amazon is run by lickspittle political hacks, it could be populated by an unknown number of unhinged elements from the left. What happens when a 'concerned' systems admin goes woke and halts a critical launch, throws a spanner into target acquisition networks, if someone from the company holds the network to ransom over secret info, leaks info to the MSM...

#8 An unmentioned part of all this is that Amazon is currently under investigation for various anti-trust violations, while Microsoft is not... at least not anymore. The federal government could easily have chosen not to place a bid with a company whose activities are under active investigation.

#9 Amazon's business model is based on illegal predatory pricing.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
