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.

Gee, does anyone think this event might, in small part, have anything to do with the Bush administration's dull-witted small-minded xenophobic view of the world and, in this case, of Germany in particular? You know they're already disinclined to patronize McDonald's and quaff Coke in Germany since the invasion of Iraq. This looks like more of the same sentiment to me, with the added bonus of free software.<P>
So, Knoppy, you're saying that Bush II is doing good for Linux? He's not only shamed them as self-serving cowards, but frightened them into adopting Linux? WOW! That George ... he's one BUSY guy!
