It is the Richto/TheVogan dogma that Munich cost an extra 100m to go to Linux because a HP report paid for by Microsoft gave some completely spurious figures, such as the costs of computers that Munich did not buy, while not balancing these with the costs that would have applied had they stayed with Microsoft, where they would have had to buy new computers. Also he adds in the total cost that IBM spent on developing Linux even though that was for their mainframes and nothing to do with Munich.

In spite of posting as AC, his posts are easily recognisable.
