I thought this quote was noteworthy.

CERN knows building end-user software won't be easy. "While the Microsoft Alternatives project is ambitious, it's also a unique opportunity for CERN to demonstrate that building core services can be done without vendor and data lock-in, that the next generation of services can be tailored to the community's needs," Ormancey concluded,
Although they freely admit that leaving the world of Windows is ambitious, there is computing life besides Windows. Linux is leading the way for open-source software and alternatives for Windows.
