Birmingham, England Migrating to FOSS

According to ZDNet, Birmingham, England is pilot-testing a move to Linux, OpenOffice and Firefox:

“The council the largest in Europe will move 1,500 desktops and all the associated back-end servers in its library service to Linux and other open source software including OpenOffice and Firefox. The year-long trial will be backed by government money, and include a final, neutral assessment of the value of the move. Public terminals in libraries will be shifted to Linux, as well as office systems in the library service.”
