Microsoft announced last year that it was moving its German headquarters to Munich. This move is planned to take place in 2016. While Reiter was involved in the deal that precipitated the move and describes himself as a "Microsoft fan," he says the criticism of LiMux is unrelated.
Limux is a project which, up until 3 days ago, has been widely reported as successful. It's been going on for 10 years for god's sake.

This is a single politician in the german government trying to derail the project for personal gain.
