   from the killer-penguin dept.
   [1]JoScherl writes "The German news site Heise [2]reports (German,
   [3]Babelfish version) that the city council of Munich (3rd biggest
   city in Germany, 1.3 million inhabitants) has voted for the detailed
   concept of the [4]LiMux - Linux for Munich (German, [5]Babelfish
   version) project with votes from all parties except the CSU
   (Christlich Soziale Union, christion social union). With this decision
   the 13,000 Desktops and Servers of the city administration will be
   migrated to Linux. CSU, which has just won the European elections,
   said they won't support Linux since its Feierabendprogrammierer
   ('leisure-time coders') would destroy Munich's IT-landscape (Microsoft
   Germany and other big companies are located in and around Munich) and
   they also fear that the personnel would have problems with learning
   how to use OpenOffice and other migrated systems. The migration plan
   has the following steps: This year the Windows NT desktops get
   OpenOffice and Mozilla as their default office and browsing suite. In
   2005 and 2006 the systems will be migrated to Linux, with some
   applications running on Windows application servers. In 2008 all
   applications should run native on Linux."
