    The Washington Post today has a front page article talking about how the Extremadura region in Spain is converting all government offices, businesses, and home from Windows to Linux.

    The article talks of their problems last spring and how the community banded together to solve them. "But the glitches are more an annoyance, [Ana Acevedo, who heads one of the government's document-processing units] said, than a hassle. 'It's mostly very tiny things,' she said." Overall, this is an important testbed for localities all over the world who are looking at making the switch.

    Overall, a very good and balanced article.

    Germany did the same thing last year in response to MS leaving certain backdoors into the operating system available and providing the U.S. Government the means to exploit those backdoors.
