French Parliament switches to Ubuntu

By Dave

I am currently using Ubuntu on my new home computer as my only operating system, and I must say, after a few small problems, I am glad I made the switch. Well, now it seems like I am not the only one as the French Parliament is making the switch.

From Ubuntu’s site:

The French Parliament looks to be the next big Ubuntu switcher according to reports. Recently the Parliament produced an official government report that recommended the use of free software over proprietary software. The switch to free software is expected to provide a substantial savings to the tax-payers according to the government study.

Following this recommendation two companies, Linagora and Unilog, have been selected to provide the members of the Parliament as well as their assistants new computers containing free software. This will amount to 1,154 new computers running Ubuntu prior to the start of the next session which occurs in June 2007.

If you haven’t switched to Ubuntu or another Linux distribution yet, what is your reason?
