A Tale of Two Cities
by Matthew Langham
In related news this week, the city of Frankfurt decided to stick with Windows and not go for Linux.
While companies like IBM and SuSE are celebrating the victory in Munich, it seems interesting that there seems to be little talk (actually I haven't read anything on this) of just which applications all the city employees are actually going to use. Apart from the normal office-type programs there are also specific ones that will have to be ported or rewritten. Will these be open source too?
