German Government Switching Back To Windows OS From Linux After 10 Years

Back in 2004, German City Council decided to deploy Linux OS across their departments to reduce the dependence of Microsoft and to decrease the costs associated with their IT systems. Whenever the discussions about cost savings by switching to open source software comes, Microsoft always tells that there are lots of hidden costs associated with it. This argument is once again proven correct by this German’s switch over to Windows. Due to poor user experience, lack of features, no proper compatibility with many standard formats, German government has decided to switch back to Windows after 10 years.
