Re: Uncontrollable costs?

the biggest cost is in the SWITCHING. Some time ago didn't a German government institution switch BACK TO MICROSHAFT _FROM_ Linux??

now it's BACK AGAIN. AGAIN.

And THAT is where the "uncontrollable costs" will be - re-re-training, re-re-procurement, hiring new consultants, kicking upstairs or laying off old ones, yotta yotta.

I hope they stick with a good commercial LInux solution, maybe a GERMAN company?

I'm thinking Suse Linux.
