Elektroschock writes "For 4 years MEP Marco Cappato tried to get access to the EU Council open source migration study because he is a member of a responsible IT oversight committee in the European Parliament. His repeated requests for access where finally answered by the Council with the alleged loss of the study. Now, the study finally was gathered and published on the internet. It is embarrassing! Upon request the Gartner Michael Silver claimed there were no mature public Linux installations in Europe "I have not spoken to any sizable deployments of Linux on the desktop and only one or two StarOffice deployments", gartner spread patent and TCO fud. Also the European Patent Office participated in the project although it is no EU institution."
