Overstap van Linux naar Windows kost München 50 miljoen euro

München, ooit een zeer groot voorstander van open source, trekt bijna 50 miljoen euro uit voor een grootse migratie van Linux naar Windows 10.
Dat meldt The Register. München werkte 15 jaar lang met Linux, maar een ruime meerderheid van het stadsbestuur van München heeft eerder dit jaar gestemd vóór een migratie naar Windows 10. De stad trekt daar 49,3 miljoen euro voor uit, blijkt nu. De migratie zal naar schatting 5 jaar in beslag nemen.
Dieter Reiter, de burgemeester van München, waarschuwde in 2014 al dat een overstap hoge kosten met zich zou meebrengen. Hij ging toen al uit van 17 miljoen euro. Daarbij waren de kosten voor nieuwe licenties en infrastructuur niet eens meegenomen.
