FNB switches 12 000 desktops to Linux

Following recent reports of a South African bank eying out Linux, Novell South Africa today issued a statement in which it said it had reached an agreement with First National Bank of South Africa to standardize the bank's 12 000 desktops in its 680 retail branches on Novell's Linux product.

With 12 000 desktops switching to Linux this is very likely the most significant Linux and open source implementation in South Africa to date.
