The talk on #Limux by our president Matthias @Kirschner's at the #OSSummit is covered in this @lwnnet article: https://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/737818/5b7cd538561e8a06/ … #PublicCode #fsfe #FreeSoftware

The rise and fall of Limux

The LiMux (or Limux)
initiative in Munich has been heralded as an example of both the good and
bad in moving a public administration away from proprietary systems. Free
Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) President Matthias Kirschner reviewed the
history of the initiative—and its recent apparent downfall—in a talk at
Open Source Summit Europe in Prague. He also looked at the broader
implications of the project as well as asking some questions that
free-software advocates should consider moving forward.
