Dice Neowin, citando la web de Suddeustche.de (http://www.sueddeutsche.de/muenchen/muenchner-stadtverwaltung-von-microsoft-zu-linux-und-zurueck-1.2090611) que el ayuntamiento de Munich (Baviera) va a volver a Windows en sus ordenadores. La razòn, dice Suddeustche: segùn su vicealcalde Schmid, las muchas quejas. “Los empleados sufren, tenemos que cambiar”.

Allá por 2004 decidieron poner LiMux en 9000 ordenadores y ahorrarse el coste de las licencias Windows, pero parece que las cosas no han ido tal y como se esperaban:

‘Teòricqmente, Linux ofrece más posibilidades de configurar mi ordenador que Microsoft, pero en la práctica, esto parece que no funciona, al menos en Munich.

“No matter Unit in which I come, everywhere I get confirmed that the employees suffer. We have to change,” said Josef Schmid. Therefore, the City will appoint an independent expert group. “If the experts recommend a return to Microsoft, this is not impossible for me,” Schmid said. (traducido de Suddeustche)

Issues arose when the Linux OS users tried to work with those outside the city and they were unable to share files easily with those on other applications. More so, the idea is generally that Linux setups are cheaper than a Microsoft solution as you do not have to pay licensing fees but what Munich experienced is that Linux was much more expensive. Why is it more expensive? That’s because the city had to hire programmers to build out functionality that they needed and then had to pay the staff to maintain the software.

The city is now in the process of jumping back to a Microsoft solution and is now converting those 9000+ machines back to Windows.
