Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Munich goes with Linux!
The city of Munich has choosen to change from Microsoft to Linux in their computers. This is a funny decision, even when I think it's a good, one. Microsofts german central is in Munich, so they are employer in that area. Sure - Microsoft is more expensive and, since I'm working in the city office of cologen, I'd also like us making this step over to Linux. But sure there are not just a few problems. Linux might be cheaper but who will administrate it? I mean we're not talking a little company with 10 employees. We're talking a few thousand users at once, we're talking about a few hundreds different programs, applications, partly very special ones. It would be difficult or at least cost money to have them developed for Linux. We're talking about a few hundred people working in the IT of this, some of them just having made their MCSE and other Microsoft certificates - and paid the hell of money for it. But anyway - even when I don't like bavarian accent and stuff - Hugh Five to Munich!
