The city of Munich's plan to migrate its workers from Windows to Linux has hit a few snags, according to a story in Wired. Financial concerns over the
cost of the project coupled with political concerns from within the city government have slowed the city's efforts to convert its 14,000 computers to
the open-source operating system, and now the city has requested a complete briefing on the costs associated with the project. The final briefing is
expected to come before May.
