The LiMux project has gained worldwide attention when the City Of Munich decided to switch to a linux­based client in 2003. Today more than 15.000 clients run on LiMux. This talk will shed light on the initial decision process, the projects history und current state. It will get you to know the technical base that secured the projects success and the infrastructure used for system and configuration management.

LiMux heavily relies on FOSS components like (K)Ubuntu, Puppet, LibreOffice or Firefox. The talk will highlight the requirements to use FOSS in an enterprise environment, how well these requirements were met and what developpers might bear in mind to make life easier for people actually using their software on a larger scale.

From the very beginning the LiMux projects has been under immense attack from various sides. Nevertheless it became a huge success and working on a linux­based client has become routine for the majority of Munich's employees. The talk will conclude by trying to draw a picture of the projects future and how LiMux and the community may interact closer to make both worlds better.
