"The South African Revenue Service (SARS) issued a tender (RFT 37/2005)
for a proof of concept Linux desktop solution for the tax-collecting
government department on 17 February. While SARS admits that the
challenge of moving to Linux on the desktop is great, a successful
proof of concept could see 14 000 desktops running Microsoft Windows
XP SP2 migrated to Linux."
Linux among governmental bodies is always exceptionally encouraging news.
