LXer: <em>Linux in Government:</em> SA tax man eyes desktop Linux

Published at LXer:

The South African Revenue Service has issued a tender for a proof of concept Linux desktop solution for the tax-collecting government department with a R355 billion ($58 billion) revenue. While SARS admits that the challenges of moving to Linux on the desktop are numerous, a successful proof of concept could see 14 000 desktops running Windows migrated to Linux.
