Happy Trails, Diebold!

Diebold has ceased doing business with North Carolina rather than release the source code behind their voting machines into escrow. Their excuse? Their machines contain Microsoft software. If they give the source code to NC, they break their licensing terms with MS.

Whatever, I say. It’s a convienient way of getting out of town and not let their software take the blame. If Diebold really believed in their software, they would put the code in escrow, and let NC deal with Microsoft.

All I can say is good riddance to Diebold. I’m happy to see a company with such insecure voting software get out of here.
