Munich converts to GNU/Linux and then FAILS!

The dangerous Linux advocate's lies can cost tax payers MILLIONS!  When
someone believes that Linux is ready for the desktop, or that Linux has MORE
and BETTER applications than Windows would be wise to learn what happened in

Munich DELAYED their Linux conversion from Microsoft(TM) software.  They are
going back with their tails between their legs.

But look how quickly they are back-tracking on their Linux conversion.
Munich's reason of delaying is supposedly because of "patent issues".  But
IBM said that they won't sue, and if IBM says they won't sue, no one else
can because IBM has thousands of patents and they can bury anyone who tries
because most companies likely infringe on one of IBM's patents.

So obviously, patents are not the real reason Munich Germany is stopping
their conversion to Linux.  And we all know what the real reason is: LINUX

Munich Linux boxes were battered left and right as various MS Word documents
flew their way.  Popular business applications were unavailable on Linux,
and the OSS equivalents were years behind in features and stablility.
Necessary accounting programs needed to run the city were only Windows
based.  Imagine the grief caused to the poor government workers.  And the
Linux option was MORE expensive!

Now Munich will have to pay the Linux vendor 35 MILLION EUROS AND WILL ALSO
HAVE TO PAY THEIR MICROSOFT licenses!!!!  The German tax payers who must now
pay DOUBLE, once for the Linux conversion AND NOW FOR Microsoft Licenses
because they are not converting to Linux.

There is a lesson to be learned.  Don't believe a word Linux advocates say.
They hope and pray that linux is better than windows, but it's not.  LINUX
