Leipzig on course with free office package
OpenOffice has since been installed on 3,900 of Leipzig’s 4,200 PC workstations and is now used as the standard office program within the council. A working group is currently busy linking Leipzig’s specialist procedures to OpenOffice.
Hannes Kästner, Leipzig city council’s IT-coordinator, says: “The switch in the office package is the first major open source project of Leipzig city council. Its aim is to reduce the dependency on proprietary software”.
