    Since the heart attacks have been working (70hrs a week for the last month) on costing our department's move of about 3000 pc's to thin clients (read dumb terminals) running as virtual machines under Linux on a huge IBM mainframe (read gigaflops)....well it'll save us millions each year in desktop costs (**** I hope its been announced or I'm in deep doodoo) and it has won the race. No more M$ licences etc etc....a huge win for us linux brigade......

    w00h00!
    Is it ok to ask what department?
    Is there a press release?
    Can I plaster this all over the front page of p-two.net?
    Should I keep my big mouth shut?
