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.

RE: Linux vs. Apple

Apple needs to learn nothing. They're running a very successful business on their closed hardware, and are moving very quickly toward compatability. That's what's missing. I don't care what OS anyone runs(although I'd love OSX on my desk) I just want to be able to interact with anyone. Open file standards, open api's are what needs to take place.
