Uniform programming

If there were a computer programming "authority" to make sure your computer was programmed exactly the same as every other computer, but there was a limit to the total amount of programming that could be done, how would that work for you?

What if something unexpected cropped up that the central planners hadn't anticipated? How would new things be developed? Does one size really fit all?

And why do people think standardized "education", mandated by government for its schools, is any better?
