If Windows is such a shitty operating system, why do police officers use it to write reports?

Checkmate /tech/.

I actually like the old Win 95, Win 2000 and XP platform. As long as its not online 24/7 its not a bad OS to have. Sure does have its security flaws like every other OS.

On the other hand... Win 10 I would not touch with a ten foot pole.

So they can make sure the police aren't writing reports full of wrong think.

Software support. Most UNIX-like systems lack support for mainstream tools that these guys need. Also, the US government has contracts with Microsoft, as well as universities.
The server running the services from police is most likely a gnu/linux or BSD system.

Some sensitive groups in inteligence agencies don't use Windows because of security, just the 'normal' police.

Unix/Linux won everywhere (servers + mobile platforms) except for desktops because people expect desktops to do everything from interfacing 20 year old printers to running the latest games.

I think its more of the fact that its the default os with toughbooks. They can set it on their car and see the screen in full daylight.
