|The rise and fall of LiMux|
|By Thom Holwerda on 2017-11-10 23:12:03|
The LiMux (or Limux) initiative in Munich has been heralded as an example of both the good and bad in moving a public administration away from proprietary systems. Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) President Matthias Kirschner reviewed the history of the initiative - and its recent apparent downfall - in a talk at Open Source Summit Europe in Prague. He also looked at the broader implications of the project as well as asking some questions that free-software advocates should consider moving forward.
The LiMux initiative is one of the longest-running story 'streams' on OSNews. The oldest item I could find is from 2003.
