AFTER YEARS OF SPECULATION, the city of Munich last week confirmed that it will ditch its Linux infrastructure in favour of, er, Windows 10.
News of the switch hasn't gone down well with the Linux community. The Document Foundation, which manages the development of the LibreOffice suite which is the primary productivity suite in Munich, told the INQUIRER that "a significant step backwards" for the City that will lead to significant expenditure of public money and has failed to consider the hidden costs of interoperability in the future.
Elon Musk also made headlines last week, of course, after stating that humans need to become cyborgs in order to survive. Of course.
