Ballmer fails to get Munich agreement

The Inquirer | Ballmer fails to get Munich agreement

THE SOFTLY spoken and quietly demure CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, has failed to persuade Munich to take the Windows route.

Instead the city has abandoned its old ally Microsoft and opted to join the Open Source axis by switching more than 14,000 PCs in the government network to Linux.

The project dubbed LiMux (Linux for Munich) will begin this year with the adoption of OpenOffice.org office suite and the Mozilla Web browser running on the jurisdiction's existing Windows NT desktops.
