French Police Migrating to OpenOffice.org

Groklaw reported on 18/Jan/2005 that the French police (“la Gendarmerie Nationale française”) will be switching to OpenOffice.org from Microsoft Office, according to the French industry news service Toolinux:

“By the end of January some 35,000 PCs and workstations are to be equipped with the open source office suite; by this summer the number is to reach 80,000. The French police expect to be able to cut costs amounting to more than two million euros by this move.”
