Munich ditches Linux

The city of Munich is dropping Linux and moving to Windows.

As reported by Engadget, the decision comes after Linux became the operating system of choice for the city in 2003.

Munich now plans to install Windows 10 on 29,000 city council PCs from 2020.

“There will also be a pilot where Munich runs Office 2016 in virtual machines,” stated the report.

The report stated that “complaints about IT performance” were part of the reason for the switch.

The city said it will cost around $58 million to roll out Windows 10.
