A List of Linux Migration Stories? 68

borfast asks: "From time to time, I read about schools, cities, states or countries that decided to switch their operating systems to Linux for a number of reasons. The latest was the city of Munich. I'm currently preparing a presentation to do on local schools about Free Software and its advantages (and disadvantages) in government and education, and I'd like to show some examples of what I'll be saying to those folks. Not that I consider myself an authority on the subject but you know the saying, 'In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king'. Anyway, I have been collecting all the stories (both positive and negative) I find but I'd really appreciate it if the Slashdot crowd could give me a hand, here. Due credit will be given and the presentation will be posted online under a Free license. So, what Linux migration nightmares or cotton-candy dreams do you know about, and do you know any site that collects these stories?"

    As the snow begins to melt and the first buds of spring begin to swell, the Linux, thin and gaunt from a winter's starvation, begins to seek out others of its own kind, gathering at the swiftly thawing ponds and lakes. Soon, great flocks of Linux will begin their long migration south to their summer breeding grounds. Many will not make it, too exhausted from their journey to continue, or falling victim to the many predators who dog their steps on their long flight...

    Okay, so this one time I was typing a report for school, and my computer was like "beeeeep beep beep beeeep beepbeep beeep" and then my report was gone. Then I switched to Linux and smoked some reefer.

    I'm sure many other people have similar stories.
