Munich DELAYED their M$ conversion from Microshat software.  They
are going back with their tails between their legs because
of American sponsored spies infiltrating German Green party
to pony up illegal monopoly concerns.

But look how quickly they are back-tracking on their M$ 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 GNU/Linux.  And we all know what the real reason is:
American procedures in Europe. We do not want American political
procedures in Europe wherein their spies stand up and promote
private firms and their products.
Munich Linux boxes were battered left and right as various MS Word
documents flew their way.  Popular business applications were available on
Linux, and the OSS equivalents were years ahead in features and stablility.
Necessary accounting programs needed to run the city were X-Windows
based.  Imagine the grief caused to the poor government workers.  And the
GNU/Linux option was MORE free and creative!

Now Munich will HAVE TO PAY THEIR MICROSHIT licenses!!!!  The German tax
payers who must now pay DOUBLE, once for the GNU/Linux in
the future AND NOW FOR Microshit Licenses because they are not converting to

There is a lesson to be learned.  Don't believe a word American advocates
say of M$ products. They know that GNU/Linux is better than windopes, but
the $50 million slush fund to bribe them all is just too good.  GNU/LINUX
