Munich administration switches to OpenDocument Format

,----[ Quote ]
| The LiMux project, which oversees Linux 
| migration in Munich, the capital of Bavaria, 
| has reached another milestone. According to a 
| 2009 development review that the deputy 
| project leader Florian SchieÃl  has posted on 
| his blog, open source OpenDocument Format 
| (ODF) is now the main document exchange 
| standard, with PDF being used for non-
| editable files. According to SchieÃl, the 
| city administration's standard desktops now 
| consist of the free OpenOffice.org office 
| suite, Mozilla's Firefox browser, the 
| Thunderbird email client and several other 
| open source applications, such as the GIMP 
| image editor.

GNU/Linux Migration in Munich is in Good Shape

,----[ Quote ]
| There is an end-of-2009 article by Floschi
| that shows the migration has overcome all the
| obstacles and made good progress:
|     * 2500 GNU/Linux clients spread over all
|     12 departments
|     * 20000 ODF templates produced and ODF is
|     the standard format for documents
|     * FLOSS apps everywhere in use daily


LiMux review 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| ODF as standard, OpenOffice.org everywhere
| LiMux has achieved one very important goal.
| The open standard Open Document Format (ODF)
| is now Munichâs primary used internal
| document exchange standard, beside of PDF for
| non-editable documents. Congratulations to
| all, who made this great success happen! Our
| standard office workplace consists now of
| OpenOffice.org (Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw),
| Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird and many
| other sometimes needed apps like e.g. GIMP.
| [...]
| The whole project will be adapted during the
| next months for the final big step, the
| client migration in general. Some
| improvements and optimizations in the project
| structure, to learn from the past and be
| ready for continuing the success story.
