Open source software for business and government


Hello,

I've been looking around for some case studies about open source software for business and government. But I've only find things which were a bit out dated on:
http://www.opensource.org

In the article section:
Propose a comelling linux business case

The last mentioned article is a not really what I looked for, it's more an introduction to linux in a business.

So if you know some case study or good article about this topic. It would be great to share it with me

greetings,

Nédée

City of Munich is migrating from windows to linux.
they are making their records of the experience available online, but I'm not sure where.

outside of north America, linux is actually becoming more common in business and government use, so you'll find more information if you avoid looking at .com/.net/.org websites.
