Re: Change because of the change?
@ShelLuser, had a look at your previous comments just now and perhaps I had no good reason for calling you a troll, but then again what prevented you from entering "limux" into the search engine of your choice as the saying goes.
So here we go on the state of Limux in Munich.
Quite a project indeed and I am not surprised at the amount of "politics" around it. The state of things in the video.
And on TechRepublic we find this.
"Across the council there are about 20,000 Linux-based PCs used by staff alongside about 4,163 Windows-based PCs, with Windows generally used where line of business software cannot run on anything else."........
" The staggered nature of updates to client PCs is reflected in the spread of operating system versions used by the council. The most up to date clients run LiMux 5.x, based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, which is run on about 45 percent of machines, 32 percent run version 4.1 and 23 percent run version 4.0.
Of the Windows machines, about 77 percent run Windows 7, nine percent run Windows XP / Vista and 14 percent run Windows 2000. The report gives the impression that managing Windows clients is more difficult because of the extent to which the configuration of each machine and installed software varies between departments, as well as processes for managing Windows machines being less well-established."
It does require guts to pull a project like this and I wish the town I live in had some of that. Also note how much Munich has contributed to LibreOffice.
