No more desktop Linux systems in the German Foreign Office:

  Quote: "Users have, it claims, also complained of missing 
functionality, a lack of usability and poor interoperability." end quote.

This is what I see all the time. I have tried to setup new people with 
linux, thunderbird, open office etc, to no avail. In every case its 
where is my this, that or the other. Even though with each iteration of 
ms office, things get harder to do or find, mail merge is a good 
example, people still want their word.

It is really sad, they won't give FOSS a chance, they would rather learn 
office all over again every new version from MS!

Just my 2 cents,
Mike
