it’s here and he goes on talking about our region:
Q. When does Novell think that the GNU/Linux desktop will be ready for the general user?
A. We’re doing this exercise ourselves. I think that by October the whole company has to migrate to OpenOffice, and then I think it’s by June next year we all migrate to Linux – you don’t want to migrate 6,000 people both operating system and office suite in a single jump.
We have a lot of existing customers which are also considering Linux desktop migrations and rolling out some of these programs, so we’re learning from them. For example, in Extramadura and Andalucia they’ve been going out for two years now with these deployments. They have 200,000 deployed seats and they’re going towards 400,000 deployed seats by the end of the summer on pure Linux, Gnome, Mozilla, OpenOffice desktops. They’re two very, very large deployments, probably the largest deployments of Linux desktops today. These are being used by kids, by grandmothers.
