Wienux – an Austrian Linux distribution based on Debian, prepared by the authorities of the Austrian capital, Vienna, for city officials.
The system was designed with a view to migration to the Linux operating system and open source software, primarily the OpenOffice.org office suite, which has been carried out since 2005, in place of Windows and Microsoft Office. Migration covers a significant part of the 16,000 computers working for the city administration.
As early as 2008, three-quarters of the approximately 1,000 computers that had previously been converted to Linux were re-licensed from Microsoft. The reason for this was to use software that could only be used with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. Wienux, the city’s version of Linux, has not been available for download since late 2008.
No download is available.
