  • Wim Coekaerts Returns to Oracle

    Only eight months after leaving Oracle to serve as Microsoft's corporate vice president of enterprise open source, Wim Coekaerts returns to his Oracle home.

  • “Experts” advise city of Munich to move from Linux to MS Windows

    The “unbiased experts” turn out to be the infamous consultants of Accidenture and their IT consulting joint venture with Microsoft, Avanade, who praise themselves as follows:

    12-time winner of Microsoft Partner of the Year
    24,000+ certifications in Microsoft technology
    90+ Microsoft partner awards
    23 Microsoft Gold Competencies

    Of course, Accidenture has no Linux knowhow at all, MS and SAP is all they ever heard of.

    The fact, that the German HQ of MS moved from the hinterland to Munich recently and paying taxes there, might also help them to get rid of the Debian-based LiMux.

  • From Windows to Linux: yes, that is still a thing

    A request from a bank to look at a switch from Windows to Linux has led to UK-based IT specialist Patrick Fitzgerald and his colleagues at British firm i-Layer developing a detailed method for an institution to make the transition.

    Fitzgerald, who gave a talk about it at SUSECon 2016, has been in the IT business for a long time. He and his colleagues only came up with the detailed plan when he had to tackle the task set for him by the Allied Irish Bank.

    "The bank has 900 branches and 7500 teller workstations," Fitzgerald said. "After the move, just two people are needed to manage the lot." He added that the smallest branch had just two users, one teller and ran on bandwidth of 128k.

    The bank initially called him in for advice and help when it experienced a shortage of trained staff.

  • A Loopy Non-Interview With Linux Advocate Marcel Gagné

    This week, Roblimo again takes a virtual trip up to the Great White North, that would be Canada for the benefit of the NSA and those of you taking notes at home, and has way too much fun hanging out with Linux advocate Marcel Gagné.

  • Why open source Munich may bring Windows back [Ed: Microsoft paid a lot of money for Wim Coekaerts to pretend that "Microsoft loves Linux", but he has just quit]
  • Open source champion mulls return to Microsoft [Ed: More Microsoft nonsense courtesy if its proxy Accenture which tries to undermine Munich's migration and success story]
  • The Renaissance Continues for Open Source Artificial Intelligence [Ed: the latest Microsoft openwashing from the usual suspects]
