Debian and its clones Steve McIntyre visited the LiMux team in Munich and has posted a small report about the visit on his blog. LiMux is the specially tailored Debian distribution City of Munich deploys. "I'd like to talk some more about LiMux, the project being run within the City of Munich to replace all of their desktop Windows systems with Linux. They gave us a demonstration and answered lots of our questions."

I agree, but it would probably take a long time to install ;)

PS. I thought SuSE won the Munich contract for 35.7 million?http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/technology/2003-07-13-micr...

What am I missing?

No, SuSE and IBM did the viability study, presented some possible solutions and one of them got accepted.

The actual migration contract had a separate call for tenders and a group of small companies form Germany won that one.
