We're catching up on two stories of municipal engagement with open source software: Munich
(which decided to go OS in 2003) and Vienna
brings us news that Munich has stayed the course
. But bkingaut
informs that Vienna has decided to migrate back to Windows
(Google translation) — to Vista no less. The migration of 720 computers used in kindergartens will cost the city about €8M. The given reason for all this is a language test application for the kids that only works with MS IE and won't be made compatible (by the producer) with Firefox until 2009.
