Vienna hobbles open-source migration

In a setback for the City of Vienna's three-year-old open-source migration programme, city authorities decided on Wednesday to scrap most of the systems that have so far adopted the city's custom-built Linux distribution, instead approving an ââ¬8m migration to Windows Vista.
The Vienna district council on Wednesday formally approved a budget of ââ¬8m (ã6.3m) for migrating Windows 2000 systems to Vista and Office 2007, according to a report from Ãâsterreichischer Rundfunk (ORF), the Austrian national public service broadcaster.
