) seems to be getting cited by a number of Tech news sites. The ZDNet
article  here
<http://www.zdnet.com/after-a-10-year-linux-migration-munich-considers-switching-back-to-windows-and-office-7000032714/>
appears to offer more detail than most. Scant mention is made of LibreOffice
in any of the articles.

Does anyone have a clearer understanding of what this may mean in terms of
LibreOffice use if the policy is reversed and a transition from LiMux
(Ubuntu-based distribution) back to Microsoft Windows begins? LibreOffice
can of course run on either platform, but part of the issue seems to have
been OOXML support when exchanging files with customers. It will be
disheartening to see a reversal after so much effort.

Best wishes, Owen.
