Final Report On Munich’s Migration To GNU/Linux Accepted

“One of the goals was to migrate 12,000 desktops to LiMux, but in the end, the city managed to create over 14,800 LiMux workspaces for its approximately 15,500 desktops.”

That’s more than 95% share. Really think it’s essential to have 100% of desktop PCs running that other OS? Ha! Imagine M$’s bottom line if the world followed Munich’s lead! It’s happening but not fast enough for me. The world does not owe M$ a living.

    That’s not entirely correct, I’m afraid. In actual fact, Munich is a Social-Democratic island in the overwhelmingly Christian-Democratic Bavaria (of which, incidentally, it is the capital city).

    What’s important: Munich is one of strongholds of German Christian Democrats and wealthy city. Perhaps German moderate right wing understand better the value of Linux/FLOSS and economic meaning when avoinding Microsoft ecosystem.

    The city of Munich is showing rest of Germany and Europe too the future of IT of public sector.

    Loss of revenue for M$, how thrilling! Ballmer even tried to ‘persuade’ them but failed.
