Japan gov't considers abandoning Microsoft Windows
|Nov 16, 2002, 04:15 PM||#2|
Looks like Linix and open source options are what they're looking at - stating that it won't require payed upgrades. I don't blame them at all. If more large corporations do this that would be great, but I know for a fact that not everything (app wise) is available on Linix. There still needs to be a little more development there, but I can only imagine it will be a matter of time.

Many other countries have already ditched Windows for Linux.
The German government now uses SuSE Linux. So do many German companies.
Most companies switched simply due to the extreme costs of having to upgrade Windows and associated software.
