Microsoft is experiencing a backlash in the outback as Australian corporates start switching to Linux software for critical applications.
According to reports in The Australian, Aussies don't give a XXXX for the Redmond giant and its new licensing regime.
The newspaper said that there is deep scepticism among corporate decision makers about Licensing 6.0, which took effect at the beginning of the month, and reported a remarkable uptake of Linux in the past two years.
Even the Australian Federal Government is getting in on the act, with Centrelink and the Department of Veteran Affairs signing deals for Linux systems.
And across the Tasman Sea, Air New Zealand is also moving to open source.
But Microsoft in Australia claimed that organisations have accepted its new licensing model and that Windows server sales had enjoyed double-digit growth since 1999.
