Ubuntu strikes a big deal in Germany…

Ubuntu struck a deal with one of Germany’s largest insurance companies to install 10,000 Ubuntu Based PC’s.  The feat was made possible partially because of the companies use of Java Software to manage claims information.  The company had also standardized on Linux friendly software like Lotus Notes, Adobe Reader and OpenOffice.  This is a great win for Ubuntu and Linux on the desktop.  Hopefully they will write some white papers about what they did and how they overcame the problems they encountered along the way.

So my quesiton for everyone.  What percentage of your company could switch over the Linux on their desktop?
