A German State is Switching Its 25,000 Computers From Windows to Linux

The north-German state of Schleswig-Holstein plans to switch to open source software…” reports Mike Saunders from LibreOffice. “By the end of 2026, Microsoft Office is to be replaced by LibreOffice on all 25,000 computers used by civil servants and employees (including teachers), and the Windows operating system is to be replaced by GNU/Linux.” The tech site Foss Force writes: This seems to be a done deal, as the steps for the transition from proprietary to open have already been codified by the Schleswig-Holstein state parliament, and explained in plain language in an interview with Jan Philipp Albrecht, the state’s digital minister, that was published in c’a German language computer magazine (Google Translate version here).
