Vienna buying Office Licenses

When you just read the following sentence: "usage of a software, that can only be used together with the Internet Explorer". You already know the consequence that several hundreds Wienux boxes are gone.
Heavily disgusted by the waste of community money.

The online local newspaper has a comment that seems quite to the point to me: "If as sysadmin you introduce Linux you'll be accounted for eventual failures, while with softies people just accept the shortcomings and won't blame you."
German source: Wiener Inkompetenz in IT Managment.

P.S.: Wienux got setup by inexerienced people having no prior exposure to Open Source. The project setup included a calculated failure from the start.
