Open Source facilitates German world-wide secure network

,----[ Quote ]
| With respect to Open Source, the AA is serious about migrating all
| its Windows desktops to Linux. But before that, and to be independent
| in the long run as well, all the applications that are used
| internally are being rewritten as web-applications.

Two short and clear messages from Germany to Steve B.

,----[ Quote ]
| The German department of State has declared that their business case
| for their complete migration away from Windows towards Linux and other
| FOSS is based on SECURITY, RELIABILITY and COST reasons. They
| completed their migration of nearly all server and desktop systems
| WITHOUT the need for a RETRAINING of their staff, while IT costs
| dropped even on the short run already below one quarter of the
| costs they had while using a Windows infrastructure.
