Re: £150m deal was signed with Microsoft to update systems to Windows 10
for THAT! MUCH! they could have RE!-WRITTEN! every windows-only application to RUN! ON! LINUX! and *THEN* switched EVERYTHING over to Linux, and would have had MONEY LEFT OVER afterwards.
I base my opinions on actual history, like Ernie Ball's experience switching the entire company over to Linux in the early 2000's.
