Italian parliament bets house on SuSE Linux

Two-year switch to begin in September

Italy’s parliament is about to undertake Europe’s largest governmental migration yet to open sauce.

The IT department of the Italian parliament presented plans on Wednesday to begin migrating some 3500 desktop PCs, including those of its 630 MPs, away from Windows to SuSE Linux starting this September. The Camera dei deputati will also run SuSE on all of its two hundred servers.
