The city of Munich has decided to dump windows in favor of Linux and Open Source. Way to go!!!

I've read that a lot of governments are wary of overdoing windows due to M$ close ties to the US military. The article doesn't mention such fears but I'm sure that was part of the reason. What is notable about this is that Munich is the heart of Germany's tech industry. I'm sure that it will have a significant impact on other local governments in Germany as well as in Europe.
