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.

Remember the day, back in 1999/2000, when it was big news when a big corporation adopted linux? I still remember that story about Bell-South, and how it was successfully using linux for mission-critical systems! You had to keep an eye on every little corporation using linux because, the serious question of the day was: is linux good enough for the enterprise? Today, the naysayers are becoming believers!

The story will be the same for the linux desktop. It ain't there yet, but the pieces are very quickily coming together and it very soon will be.
