Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y In what is being called "one of the largest desktop migrations to Linux ever seen", Microsoft seems to have lost a major account worth "tens of millions of euros" when the city of Munich said on Wednesday it would switch 14,000 computers from Microsoft's Windows operating system to Linux.

They will most likely be netscaped

I think it's pretty sad to say, but yah, I'm quite sure they'll be netscaped... in 1 year? 5 years? most likely the latter, but things can go pretty fast.

The big question though... will MS get Netscaped by MySQL or PG?

Even better question really is if databases will be in 5 years from now what they are today... I think it'll be a completely different technology differing so much that the work placed in it today will be worthless.
