In what some less incisive souls are viewing as ammunition for the counter-attack, a recent Gartner 'first take' (the research outfit's free
info-gobbets) warns that Munich city council's decision to migrate to Linux should not be seen as proving the case for Linux on the desktop. Which is
no more than, as we say over here, the bleedin' obvious, but although the conclusion is sensible enough (in a bleedin' obvious sort of way, that is),
the note also includes some claims that some people might interpret as suggesting Munich's decision was thoroughly perverse.
