    German Gov promotes Linux

    Europe pays $9 billion a year to the monopolist and Germany pays at least a third of that.

    The more you pay a monopolist, the more you will pay in the future. Now with a good Office suite available, it's time to boot the monopolist where it hurts most.

    BTW, StarOffice has been number 1 on Amazon Germany for the last 3 weeks. MSFT Office Std or Professional do not even feature in the top 100 (but Office for Students does at #16). Neither does the Office Std. or Prifessional Upgrade. Suse Linux is in the top 5 and 6 paces ahead of MSFT XP home edition. MSFT is losing out to its Open Source competition in Germany. It is the shape of things to come all over the world.
