    It’s also interesting to note how the French Gendarmerie handled this transition. They first moved over to open source applications before switching out the OS. That way their employees were used to the tools long before losing Windows, making for a much easier transition where Ubuntu fades into the background and “just works.

    Well done !

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
