"Vienna will next year join a growing number of European cities
opening the door to Linux, the open source operating system that is
encroaching on Microsoft's dominant Windows program.

The municipality of Vienna will offer about half of its officials the
choice of switching from Windows to Linux in 2005, the mayor of the
Austrian capital said late on Tuesday.

The head of the city's information services, Erwin Gillich, said about
7500 of the city's 16,000 municipal officials would be allowed to
choose Linux, which is considered less virus-prone, and an evaluation
will be made in 2006"
