When we think of the Gnome project, we mostly think of the Linux/BSD desktop, but McGovern said that it’s really “...important to note that the GNOME project is more than simply a desktop. GNOME technologies have been used to build a range of highly successful consumer products,” he said.

Playing Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Lol that guy is peeing. And it's AMAZING to play this game on the 226" screen of my PlayStation 4 VR.

I think every modern Ford vehicle is an IoT device on wheels.

When most people think of IoT, their imagination (or lack of it) is limited to the tiny IoT devices that we see around us, such as webcams, sensors, and whatnot. IoT actually goes beyond that. It's being used in fields we can't even fathom. It's ubiquitous. Cars are just one example of IoT devices.

I don't understand why would Munich want to go back to Microsoft when Germany itself is home to the leading open source projects and products including +SUSE +openSUSE +Kolab Systems AG +Nextcloud GmbH +LibreOffice

Below are some key points. Can someone explain why is Munich doing this?

The world’s second largest Linux vendor is a German company called SUSE, headquartered in Nuremberg, Germany, a city that’s mere 160 Km away from Munich. (More accurately, SUSE is now a subsidiary of the UK-based Micro Focus, but SUSE still operates as an independent unit of Micro Focus and it has a huge developer and executive base in Nuremberg.) SUSE not only develops the second most popular enterprise server operating system, SUSE Linux Enterprise, it also sponsors a free of cost, community driven operating system called openSUSE.

LibreOffice, a fully open source office suite, is the biggest competitor to Microsoft’s Office suite. LibreOffice also has an online version that offers an Office 365-like experience. The development of LibreOffice is governed by The Document Foundation. And do you know where TDF is based? Berlin, Germany.

When it comes to file store, sync and cloud services, nothing beats the fully open source solution Nextcloud, which is a totally vendor-neutral alternative to Microsoft's OneDrive. It’s founded by a German and is based out of Stuttgart, Germany.

Instead of using Microsoft Outlook, Munich could have used a fully open source and vendor-neutral groupware/email solution by Kolab Systems, which is based in Switzerland. Kolab Systems was founded by a group of companies to meet the demands of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).

There is only one keyword that I see here: Germany. Germany. Germany!
