Big cities jumping ship

Publié le :

The third biggest German city, Munich will replace Windows with Linux on 14,000 desktops. Norway's second-largest city, Bergen, announced it would be following in Munich's footsteps and opting to run Linux to replace Windows and proprietary Unices for 100 schools and 32,000 users. Paris, capital of the universe France, is evaluating a move to Linux for 17,000 PCs and 400 servers.

It's definitely going to stick on the radar for quite some time and serve as in vitro tests for the viability of Linux vs. Windows on all fronts (servers and desktops). Expect fights, tears, blood and casualties along the journey.
