Yesterday I met some of the local Debian people in Munich at Pasta & Basta. There were lots of people, encouraged by Munich Council’s choice of a Debian-based solution for their LiMux project.
I recently read Florian Schießl’s Limux slides (German) from his talk at Chemnitz LinuxTag a few weeks ago. I’m pleasantly surprised by how sanely and pragmatically they are planning the project. I think this is going to work out. And I really like that they want to encourage local Open Source businesses.
Update: Michael Banck has more details.
