We must migrate

Munich embraces Linux at last – ZDNet UK News:

The City of Munich has finally started to migrate to Linux on the desktop, a year later than planned.

The local government in the German city has transferred 100 users in the Lord Mayor’s department to a Debian configuration, and it intends to migrate 80 percent of its PCs by mid-2009.

Costs for the project appear to be rising. Total internal and external costs are now expected to be €35m, up from a figure of €30m quoted by the government three years ago.

Schiessl refused to make a comparison. “We do not have a goal to compare total cost of ownership. Microsoft stopped supporting NT 4.0, so we must migrate.”

It’s that simple: “Microsoft stopped supporting NT 4.0, so we must migrate.”  Go free software!
