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.

life not fair

Life is never fair for MS unless they get it all.

So they undercut Linux price by just enough to swing it. How long would that have lasted. Once hooked on MS, the price climbs very steeply in the long run. The price only drops when they are real scared, its a matter of saving face for MS. I am still pissed they took over VPC.

Its all about control, if you don't care about anoyances and want to live in popup window, virus, spam infested world, go MS. I Hope that the employees who have to use Linux though will have good tech support on hand so they have a smooth ride.
