In an article of today, TMCNet reports, that “Banco do Brasil has completed the migration of all its Windows XP computers to the OpenOffice.org open source suite”

They report that 35,000 PC have been converted from Windows XP to Linux with OpenOffice.org. This is a lot of PC’s that now run the open source office suite. Banco do Brazil is federally owned and the Brazilian government has supported open source for quite a while. They are not only using it but actively making sure that translations are available in Portuguese as well as supporting open source development.
