I am based in Scotland and I am looking for some help in putting
together a proposal concerning the advantages of desktop linux in
business and the public sector. I am looking for evidence of people
doing it in the real world. I came across this:
"And as the City Council in Nottingham, England, plans a new software
application for 10,000 employee workstations, it is seriously asking the
question, "Are we going to run this on Windows or open-source, like Linux?"
Does anyone know anything about this? Did they do it? Did it work? Could
some one put me in touch with some one who is/was involved in the project?
Yes I know it is Nottingham *County* Council but the quote comes from
Grateful for any help or thoughts,
