No, this is a management problem, as usual. This call for Linux is coming from people who have known this all along, who have been fighting for Linux all the time and have been ignored by ignorant managers who go with Microsoft every time.

Government technology is not chosen based on merits, it’s based on who gets the say, that’s all.
