LXer: Microsoft won't release study that challenged success of Munich's Linux migration

Published at LXer:

Microsoft and Hewlett Packard won't share a study claiming that the German city of Munich had its numbers wrong when it calculated switching from Windows to Linux saved the city millions -- although an HP employee did provide the data to a German publication that reported on the results. By switching from Windows to its own Linux distribution, LiMux, Munich has saved over 11 million (US$14.3 million) so far, the city announced in November. But a Microsoft-commissioned Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) study conducted by HP suggests that the city's numbers are wrong, and claims that Munich would have saved 43.7 million if it had stuck with Microsoft, German weekly Focus reported earlier this week.
