From next year on, all software developed by the city of Munich will be Free Software. This year they will already select five projects to start with. (de)

@bjoern I wish other cities/countries followed that example 👍

@bjoern good job, Munich! public money, public code!

@bjoern Didn't Munich run GNU/Linux and then switch back to MS Windows? Have they changed their minds again?

@mpjgregoire yes, 2016 a coalition of SPD and CSU decided to migrate back from GNU/Linux to Windows. This year a new government was elected and the new coalition of Green and SPD decided to invest more in Free Software and digital sovereignty again.
