Excellent

Not just good news for Linux, but a good informative article with no accusation of "zealotry" being possible. Siemens are a very pragmatic company and have shown that they only resort to things after a long period of detailed investigation.

I especially liked the bit where they stated that only 2 days training is needed to change from Windows + MS Office to Gnome + OOo, the same as would be required for a Windows upgrade.

The anticipated roll-outs are also interesting. I wonder if there is a central site for keeping track of these enterprise level conversions: that should give some idea as to the usage of Linux in industry. Does anyone have any information?
