Solothurn Debian GNU/Linux Desktop Migration Update

Solothurn, a swiss canton located about 35km north of Bern, plans to conclude its ongoing migration of 2000 desktops to Debian GNU/Linux. The migration, which began in 2006 and is about half completed, is another example of the extent that Linux and other Open Source operating systems and applications are gradually gaining acceptance.

The announcement was made by Kurt Bader, who is the director of the Office for Computer Science and Organization (Amts fur Informatik und Organisation – AIO) in the canton Solothurn. You’ll can read more about the announcement at Debian Times.
