Munich keeps door ajar for using Linux




Where it initially appeared that the City of Munich would take leave of its Linux-based systems, is its use still ajar. From meeting documents show that the City Council has yet to make a final decision.

That writes Free Software Foundation Europe according to meeting documents. At a meeting were voted on February 15 about stopping the Linux software and about to go on a Microsoft-based system. Although at provoking parties not quite could get from table the motion, they managed to slow down there in the final decision: should include first set put are no longer required which parts of the Linux software, after which the city council will come up with a decision .

This is the amortization of Linux for the computer systems of the city of Munich is less categorical than previously revealed . After much criticism, it seemed that the municipality of Munich, under the leadership of a new mayor, the Linux project would reduce. However, the city council can therefore still vote to retain Linux, or parts thereof. It is still unclear when the final vote will take place, but until then there will probably not change.

In December 2013 Munich had 15,000 workstations converted to LiMux; Ubuntu with KDE and LibreOffice. However, there soon came a lot of problems to light, and research from Accenture by the end of 2016 already gave the recommendation to abandon LiMux and choosing Microsoft. The Free Software Foundation pointed out then that this report possible would not be drawn independently.
