After a 10-year Linux migration, Munich considers switching back to Windows and Office http://ow.ly/2Nfz6k
Summary: For the past decade, Munich has been the poster child for open-source advocates, who pointed to its successful migration from a Microsoft platform to one built on Linux and OpenOffice. Now, a newly elected government has called in experts to see whether it's time to switch back.

All of which can easily be done in Linux.  MS just bought their way back into the Munich Government.  It also sounds like they failed to win the mind share race.  Staff and training costs are always the largest expense.  That isn't likely to change in the migration.  But they didn't do it for fiscal reasons.  They didn't want to be locked into Windows and that Echo System.  You would have thought over a 10 year period they could have solved these problems if they really wanted to.

Weaving A Network Layer Into Docker — Weave Launches http://ow.ly/2Nfz6h
It’s fascinating to watch, seemingly overnight, a vibrant ecosystem being built up around Docker. While many rightly point out that Docker didn’t invent containers, it’s fair to say that the project took a fairly esoteric part of Linux technology and reinvented it for the modern age. In doing so Docker has encouraged the [...]
