Munich adopts Novell OES

Novell might have missed out on the contract to supply the Linux operating system for the City of Munich's high-profile desktop migration to Linux, but it has sold the German city on its Open Enterprise Server product.

So M√ľnchen will be using Debian Linux on their desktops, but Open Enterprise Server for their server park?
Well, I think I'm very happy with this decision. A well integrated package in the back-office is much more important than one on the desktop. And for 16,000 desktops, it pays to build it yourself. I must confess, I'm not too fond of NLD myself and Debian is very easy to mass customize and tweak and deploy for 16,000 desktops.

Hail to Munich!
