Why was Bukhari Needed Anyway?

I prefer to ask the question ‘Why was Bukhari needed to begin with?’.

Lets recall the scenario: 200 years after the Prophet, Bukhari compiled hadith which, if not for him, would have been lost! Why was this even needed? If you were the first four caliphs, would you not have done absolutely everything to ensure the collection and dissemination of hadith collections? Remember, these collections are vital to understand the Quran! Yet the Quran was duly collected and disseminated but for hadith, we need to wait 200 years for a stable collection! The whole scenario is completely implausible and a great insult to the caliphs and the sahaba.
