"Munich's switch to open source software has been successfully
completed, with the vast majority of the public administration's users
now running its own version of Linux, city officials said today. In
one of the premier open source software deployments in Europe, the
city migrated from Windows NT to LiMux, its own Linux distribution.
LiMux incorporates a fully open source desktop infrastructure. The
city also decided to use the Open Document Format (ODF) as a standard,
instead of proprietary options. Ten years after the decision to
switch, the LiMux project will now go into regular operation, the
Munich City council said."
