LXer: Linux flagship Munich's U-turn: Install Windows 10 everywhere by end of 2020

Published at LXer:

Munich's city authority is a step closer to moving thousands of council computers from Linux to Windows, in a reversal of one of open-source software's marquee successes.

Sounds like a corruption investigation is in order?

I doubt it, anyone who tried to get friends/relatives to move to Linux can predict what happened. I can see people complaining insistently and constantly "How do I do...?" over and over and over not bothering to remember even the simplest answer/task. Even though the difference may not be much (email/WEB/spreadsheets), just one tiny little thing is enough to get the complain train going.

So I guess Munich has done what many here have done in that environment, just give up and went away

Noticed this quote "software vendors such as SAP", I can see this being an issue. SAP support on a Linux Desktop has been degrading recently and I heard an optional 'secure login' type object will not be supported on Linux.
