The double tragedy of Munich is not only the extra 12,000,000 its that only 80% of the desktops can be moved to Linux. 20% will stay with Windows XP to run applications like AutoCAD.

That will cause extra costs to run two OS infrastrutures.

Munich is great lesson for business. Linux is expensive.
