10,000 German PCs moves to Ubuntu
Advertisement
#1
Linux users are growing in number, but it's not every day the operating system gets a boost like the one recently achieved by Canonical in Germany. Specifically, German insurance company LVM Versicherungen has signed a deal with Canonical to convert 10,000 PCs to Ubuntu Linux across its operations.

Included in that total are reportedly 3,000 desktops and laptops in the company's Muenster headquarters along with 7,000 more in the company's agencies around Germany.

"Many companies are waking up to the realization that there is an alternative to an endless cycle of license fees that can amount to millions of dollars. We believe that the investment that LVM have made in converting to Ubuntu by engaging with Canonical will pay off many times," says Steve George, Canonical's vice president of business development.
