This would be a big loss for Microsoft

by Volker Weber

According to Heise Online and Spiegel Online it looks like Microsoft will be losing the city of Munich as their customer. The ruling parties SPD and Grüne have decided today they want to vote for Linux on May 28 as their future environment at the client(!) and an open source office suite.

Steve Ballmer was here to make an offer Munich can't refuse, and they still lean towards Linux. If MS loses this one, it could cause a landslide in the public sector.
